Pentadyne Flywheel Energy Storage Fleet Exceeds One Million Operating Hours

CHATSWORTH, CA--(Marketwire - September 25, 2007) - Pentadyne Power Corporation (www.pentadyne.com), the world's leading commercial manufacturer of clean energy storage systems using advanced composite flywheel technology, announced that its fleet of installed products has exceeded a total of one million hours of reliable operation.

One million hours is equivalent to more than 100 years of non-stop operation.

"To have achieved more than 100 years of proven reliable operation in less than 5 years of commercial sales is a testament both to the proven reliable performance of the Pentadyne flywheel as well as its exceptionally rapid adoption among customers in our target markets," said Pentadyne President & CEO Mark McGough. "I'm especially proud that daily operation of Pentadyne clean energy storage systems at facilities around the world not only cut energy costs compared to lead-acid batteries, they also mitigate the global warming gas emissions of batteries."

Pentadyne-made systems are sold by several of the world's leading uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system manufacturers. The company's flywheel energy storage systems are used as a supplement to increase the reliability of conventional UPS lead-acid battery arrays, or to entirely eliminate them and their associated costs, frequent maintenance issues, poor reliability and environmental impact.

"This exceptional milestone achievement represents enormous cost savings on the parts of our customers as well as a dramatic boost in their overall UPS system reliability," said Johnny Gonzales, Pentadyne's Vice-President of Sales & Service.

Speaking, exhibiting at upcoming events

Pentadyne Director of Sales Mike Lasky will be presenting tomorrow in San Francisco on advancements in UPS energy storage reliability at the Electrical Energy Storage Applications & Technology Conference (www.sandia.gov/eesat) sponsored by the US Department of Energy's Sandia Laboratory. Next week, Pentadyne will be exhibiting its flywheel system at the Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo (www.hcarefacilities.com) Oct 2 and 3 at the Chicago Navy Pier.
