Endurance customers receive favourable rates when selling electricity
Opus Energy, a leading energy supplier to businesses, has agreed to buy all of the unused power generated from Endurance-built wind turbines and has extended these market leading rates to anyone who purchases an Endurance turbine. The agreement is effective immediately and will benefit all new and existing customers who own and operate Endurance wind turbines.
Endurance UK Managing Director, Dave Rankin said:
“This agreement marries a market-leading turbine with a market-leading rate. We’re delighted to sign this agreement with Opus Energy, a leading supplier of electricity to business customers across the UK. This partnership cements Endurance’s position as the UK’s leading supplier of small scale turbines to British farmers by guaranteeing them additional income every year, mitigating the uncertainty of annual crop revenue and helping the rural economy.”

“The partnership we’ve formed with Endurance is good news for our customers and demonstrates our commitment to innovation around offering the best possible products in the marketplace.”

“We already encourage our clients to register their payments through Opus Energy based on the ease of transacting with them. This new deal means that all customers who own Endurance wind turbines – a fleet that now numbers nearly 500 machines across the UK – can now expect even better returns through preferential rates”
