ENDURANCE INTRODUCES THE MARKET'S LARGEST SINGLE PHASE WIND TURBINE

Endurance Wind Power now offers the largest single phase wind turbine for distributed wind in the North American market.

E-3120 Provides the Best Energy Production Available on a Single Phase Power Grid


Vancouver, BC October 21st 2010 - Endurance Wind Power has installed its first single phase E-3120 50kW wind turbine. It is the largest wind turbine available in the North American market providing single phase grid connection.

Three phase electrical power is the most common method used to distribute power on grids worldwide. However, in rural areas with low loads, single phase power is sometimes used to reduce installation costs of the distribution network. The single phase E-3120 turbine has been specifically designed to serve a niche market of rural farms and homes with grid compatible turbines for those with a single phase connection.

"This is a proud milestone in our product engineering and development. This single phase unit will serve a small, but important market of rural customers who are looking for an efficient, grid-connected, renewable means of energy production, "said Glenn Johnson, CEO of Endurance Wind Power.

Farms are the most suitable market for this product due to their high energy consumption and location in rural areas. Farmers often endure high electricity costs due to large energy consumption for the heating, lighting and irrigation of their farms. With the assistance of a wind turbine, farmers are able to lower energy costs, provide an additional revenue stream for their businesses, and provide a source of clean, renewable energy for their farms.

Endurance Wind Power is a manufacturer of advanced small wind turbines from 5 to 50kW in size, designed specifically for distributed wind power applications. Their line of modern, induction-based wind turbines brings efficient, reliable, safe and quiet, renewable energy within reach of homeowners, farmers, businesses and institutions across North America, the United Kingdom and an expanding global market.
