Protecting your investment for a decade

Britain's most comprehensive 10-year guarantee for small wind turbines

Protecting your investment for a decade

The 10-year Performance Guarantee Programme (PGP) covers 10 years of operation and maintenance costs, including parts, labour and expenses for the best-in-class NPS 100, NPS 50 and NPS 60. This is the only such guarantee offered by a small wind turbine manufacturer in Britain.

Unlike a standard warranty or traditional service agreement, the annual cost is based on the performance of the NPS wind turbine. This is backed by an availability guarantee and performance to power curve guarantee.

During the programme NPS will be the sole service provider. This gives peace of mind that the wind turbine will produce maximum energy and return on investment while offering the lowest total cost of ownership for the turbine’s 20+ year life.

With the 10-year Performance Guarantee Programme, Northern Power Systems is financially invested in the success of its clients' wind turbine.
