Solar Night Industries Announces Expansion Into "Modern Wind Energy Solutions" With Introduction of Skystream 3.7 by Southwest Windpower

ST LOUIS, MO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 26, 2007 -- Solar Night Industries (PINKSHEETS: SLND) announced the introduction of the Skystream 3.7 Wind Turbine to its growing line of Modern Energy solutions. The Skystream 3.7, manufactured by Southwest Windpower of Flagstaff, Arizona, uses award-winning technology to help homeowners, businesses, and farmers take control of skyrocketing utility costs with clean, affordable, renewable energy.

Small wind systems are not for everyone but if you live on at least one-half acre of land, have a wind speed average of at least 9 mph, and are looking for an affordable supplement to your current electric utility then a small wind turbine could be right for you, said the company.

"The Skystream wind turbine plays a crucial role in the emerging modern energy market," said Ben Hanewinkel, Director of Sales for Solar Night Industries. "This award-winning design is a great combination of cost, performance, and noise reduction rolled into a small wind turbine."

"We see a large growth opportunity for small wind systems in the Midwest. With strong roots in renewable energy, Solar Night Industries is poised to be a great partner and representative of the Skystream wind generator," says Josh Levinson, Director of North American Sales for Southwest Windpower. "We feel they will service our customers well."

Skystream is a fully integrated wind generator "appliance" designed specifically for the grid-connected residential market. Skystream 3.7 is a streamlined, plug-and-play technology with no battery or external electronics required allowing for connection directly to the home. When the wind is not blowing, the home can rely on the electric utility. When the wind is blowing, the Skystream delivers electricity to the house and sends any unused power into the electric grid. This causes the electric meter to spin backwards supplementing the homes dependence on the electric utility and, potentially, allowing homeowners to receive a credit on their electric bill, if the utility provides "net metering."

"The Skystream 3.7 has provided me with an affordable option to present to my customers," said Gary Mitchell, Founder of Cherokee Diversified Electric in Terrell, TX. "With the addition of this residential wind turbine to Solar Night's arsenal of renewable energy products, I now have a unique offering to bring to my clients. By utilizing this unit in conjunction with a smaller solar array, I can produce equivalent power to that of a larger system (solar) and still provide my customer with the kilowatt hours of power necessary to meet their expectations, and I'm saving them money overall."

"Skystream will change the way many Americans power their homes allowing consumers to take control of their energy costs," said Ben Hanewinkel. "Wind energy for the individual homeowner is finally mainstream and affordable. With an expert design team, and qualified professional installers, Solar Night Industries is making the purchase of wind energy as easy as buying a standard household appliance."

Solar Night Industries distributes the Skystream 3.7 Wind Turbine from its St. Louis, Missouri headquarters.
