Cleanfield Announces Wind Project with Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources

ANCASTER, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 10, 2007) - Tony Verrelli, President of Cleanfield Alternative Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AIR) announced today that the Ministry of Natural Resources'(MNR) Kenora Fire Management Headquarters will be installing five of the Company's 3.5kW Vertical-Axis Wind Turbines (VAWTs). The VAWTs will provide alternative energy power for consumption at their facility and help reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions for the province.

The versatile VAWTs will be installed on 7-metre towers at the MNR airport facility in Kenora by the end of March 2007. Cleanfield's engineers will ensure optimal operating conditions in one of Canada's harshest climates.

"This will be an excellent test of our turbines from a capacity basis, and will also demonstrate the effectiveness of the VAWT in winter conditions," stated Tony Verrelli. "We are pleased that the Modernization Division of the Ministry of Government Services has taken the lead in renewable energy generation by funding this project."

Cleanfield Energy™'s innovative engineering team has risen to the challenge of meeting both local airport and federal government regulations with this installation. This demonstrates the progressive nature of the VAWT and the company's engineering abilities.
