WindTamer Corporation Announces Sale of Wind Turbine to Marywood University

ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwire - April 13, 2010) -  WindTamer Corporation ("Wind Tamer" or "The Company") (OTCBB: WNDT) announced today the sale of a model 96GT-3500 WindTamer wind turbine to Marywood University, a private, coeducational, Catholic University with enrollment of 3,400 full- and part-time students located in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The sale is WindTamer's first in Pennsylvania and its first to a university. The turbine will be a free-standing unit placed near the University's athletic center, and will be clearly visible along the Interstate 81 corridor.

Joe Garvey, Marywood's Vice President for Business Affairs and Treasurer, said the WindTamer turbine was chosen because of its relatively small size and its lack of any negative environmental impact on the campus. "Marywood has a commitment to sustainability and to reducing our carbon footprint," said Mr. Garvey. He said that the turbine will be used to help power the University's new aquatics center, and added that "if this turbine performs as expected we will purchase as many as six more."

Mark Matthews, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for WindTamer, said the unit, which will be installed in May 2010, is an important step in opening up the market for colleges and universities, many of which are aggressively adding alternative power generation, including wind turbines. Mr. Matthews said that the purchase by Marywood "is exciting because it will be used not just for power, but for also educational purposes."
