Vector Qualifies in Saskatchewan

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - May 12, 2005) - Vector Wind Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:VWE) announced today that it has received confirmation that all three of its Saskatchewan projects have qualified for SaskPower's 2005 Environmentally Preferred Power solicitation. "Qualifying for this program gives us the opportunity to bid up to 24MW of wind capacity from each of our three sites." said Brian Barr, CEO of Vector. The Company will proceed with interconnection studies this summer in anticipation of filing formal bid documents in September 2005. SaskPower is expected to announce the successful proponents in this solicitation by January 2006.

In other developments, the Company announced that it has retained PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as auditors. "We are very pleased to be working with Price Waterhouse" said Ron Benn, Vector's Chief Financial Officer. "They have extensive experience in the power industry and given the national scope of our operations, we think a national audit firm will be an asset."

Vector is a developer of wind energy projects in Canada. It is currently active in 6 provinces and Nunavut with 13 projects at various stages of exploration and development. These projects have the potential to support over 500MW of wind energy capacity.
