An extract form the book

Windicity.com – As wind turbines are a specialist product I believed that most owners would not be familiar or initially feel too comfortable about the product. This meant that before the actual sale of the turbine income could be generated by offering site surveys to establish if a turbine was feasible, followed by the actual sale and then the installation. There was also the potential for after sales service such as selling extended warranties, either with or without an annual service and inspections, and potentially repairs.

The combination of these potential products gives a wind turbine company a really good chance of long term success. It also enables a business to potentially develop its cash flow position fairly well with income initially being earned from the site surveys, which would not require much capital outlay, and then developing to product supply where goods would potentially be initially sold before supply. The sale of extended warranties would act as a good way to increase the product sale, whilst increasing customer confidence and servicing and repairs would provide a long term income stream.
