Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The risk is that the turbine cannot produce - over its life - sufficient energy to redeem all of the energy units sold.
Do you really propose to sell energy units, or fractions of actual production? I assumed the latter in the comment where I crunched the numbers, in which case the risk is that the energy that the shareholder is entitled to over the life of the turbine will amount to less than the money invested would have been able to buy at market prices. That is, the risk is not that energy units won't be redeemable, but that the amount of energy per share will be less than originally expected.

Selling the actual energy production forward differs very little from selling a revenue amount forward. I thought your model involved selling shares of production, whatever that will be in the future, rather than selling a fixed amount of KWh.
