Cleanfield Enters Into Letter of Intent for Chinese Joint Venture

ANCASTER, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 12, 2008) - Cleanfield Alternative Energy Inc. ("Cleanfield")(TSX VENTURE:AIR) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Cleanfield Energy Corp. ("CEC"), has signed a letter of intent (the "LOI") to form a joint venture company (the "JV Company") with Zhejiang Jingye Technology Co. Ltd. ("ZJT"), an arm's length party based in Huzhou, Zhejiang, China. Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, the JV Company will be established in China and will be jointly owned by CEC and ZJT. The JV Company will become the exclusive distributor of Cleanfield's V3.5 turbines in China. Furthermore, the JV Company will construct a new manufacturing facility in China and manufacture Cleanfield's V3.5 turbines and other renewable energy products for Chinese and international markets.

The proposed joint venture is subject to certain conditions, including the parties entering into a formal joint venture agreement and receiving all required regulatory and third party approvals.

In connection with the proposed joint venture, ZJT intends to make up to $3 million equity investment in Cleanfield and will pay to Cleanfield a $1 million deposit after ZJT receives necessary regulatory approval to transfer the funds. The deposit will be held in trust and will be used to subscribe for Cleanfield's common shares upon the execution of the formal joint venture agreement subject to compliance with the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange. The deposit will be returned to ZJT if the parties do not reach a formal joint venture agreement. CEC and ZJT hope to enter into a formal joint venture agreement within 45 days of Cleanfield's receipt of the deposit.

"We are very pleased to be establishing this joint venture with ZJT," said Tony Verrelli, President and CEO of Cleanfield. "Cleanfield will be well-positioned to participate in China's rapidly developing renewable energy industry. China is key to our global strategy as we commence our global expansion. We view ZJT as an ideal strategic partner."
