ANCASTER, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 20, 2008) - Cleanfield Alternative Energy Inc. ("Cleanfield") (TSX VENTURE:AIR) announces that it has taken measures to address the potential manufacturing defect in a structural component part of their V3.5 Vertical Axis Wind Turbine. As a safety precaution, Cleanfield issued a press release and notified its customers on May 12, 2008 that the company would be replacing all affected components with new ones.

Since May 12, 2008, Cleanfield has engaged a new shaft manufacturer, the Canadian company Mecon Industries Limited ("Mecon"). The in house engineering and manufacturing at Mecon is employed to produce parts, fixtures, tooling and automation equipment for the marine, aerospace, and automotive industries. Mecon is APEO authorized to provide professional engineering services. Together Cleanfield and Mecon are using Mecon's Quality Assurance Program to test products produced for Cleanfield to reduce the risk of products defects.

In addition to the Quality Assurance Program, Cleanfield chose Mecon because of Mecon's manufacturing capabilities. The Mecon manufactured shafts will be available within six weeks.

"We're very pleased to be working with an established company like Mecon," Tony Verrelli, President/CEO Cleanfield Alternative Energy Inc. "Their design and manufacturing capabilities are what Cleanfield is looking for and we are confident that they will be able to meet the increasing demand for Cleanfield's V3.5 wind turbine."

David Foscarini, President of Mecon noted "We are honoured to be chosen as a major supplier to Cleanfield, and feel that this is a great opportunity to be involved in reducing dependence on polluting sources of energy.
