McKenzie Bay Unveils Next Generation Wind Turbine
Design, Anticipates Commercial Installations This
Summer

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich.--(CCNMatthews - Mar 23, 2005) -

Blending Function and Form, the WindStor(SM) Wind Turbine is Designed to
be Safe and Economical On or Near Urban Buildings

McKenzie Bay International Ltd. (OTCBB:MKBY) today introduces the
commercial production design of its WindStor(SM) Wind Turbine.

A significant departure from traditional, propeller-airplane-like wind
turbines, this innovative design features three curving blades coming
together at the top of the mast, combining grace, beauty, strength and
efficiency. The design is believed to enjoy many advantages over other
wind turbine technologies for urban applications, including innovative
safety redundancies, noise reduction engineering and some say it is
beautiful! Illustrations of the new design can be viewed at the
company's website at www.mckenziebay.com ("About Us").

According to Guy Battle, founding partner of London, England based
Battle McCarthy Consulting Engineers and Landscape Architects, "The
world is facing one of its sternest challenges in the coming years. How
do we continue to grow, provide wealth, and yet respect and preserve the
Earth? Part of the answer lies in creating buildings that are not only
resource efficient, but also actually collect their own energy. This new
approach by McKenzie Bay may be the perfect solution."

"WindStor(SM)offers the prospect for the best of all worlds," says
McKenzie Bay President and CEO Gary Westerholm. "Assuming that
WindStor(SM) performs as we anticipate, business owners should be able
to retain the stability of utility power while enjoying energy cost
savings without financial risks; utilities win because distributed
energy reduces stress on the grid; our country's homeland security wins
through diversification of our power supply; our shareholders win
because we expect to be cost competitive and earn a profit; and the
environment wins by reducing fossil fuel consumption and air pollution
while helping to build a secure and sustainable future."

McKenzie Bay's building integrated wind turbine solution will produce
power whenever there is sufficient wind. The turbine has been finely
engineered and is a result of over 20 years of research. It is robust,
efficient, safe, and is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Brian Douglas, Director of Business Development at the Association of
Energy Engineers says, "This breakthrough design is one of the most
innovative we have seen in years. We anticipate great things from this
cutting edge wind power design and system, which seems to embody both
renewable energy benefits and emerging technology advantages."

WindStor Power Co., a wholly owned McKenzie Bay subsidiary, intends to
sell electricity to customers and, after negotiating power purchase
agreements, begin to contract-manufacture and install WindStor Wind
Turbines. WindStor Power Co.'s ability to contract manufacture and
install WindStor(SM)is dependant upon sufficient wind power at specific
sites, satisfactory resolution of all regulatory issues, approval of
site plans and its ability to obtain adequate financial resources.

About McKenzie Bay: Michigan-based McKenzie Bay subsidiary WindStor
Power Co is the owner and developer of WindStor(SM), a wind energy
system designed to integrate distributed generation wind power installed
on or near a building with grid power. WindStor(SM) will feature
WindStor Wind Turbines, a proprietary system integrator and, if
applicable, a battery.
