Wind Works Power Corp. Signs Contract With REpower Systems for the Construction of Ontario Wind Farms Totaling 30 MW

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 19, 2011) - Wind Works Power Corp. (OTCQB:WWPW)(FRANKFURT:R5E1)(WKN:A0RPM2) is pleased to announce it has signed a contract with REpower Systems AG for the delivery, installation and maintenance of 15 REpower MM92 type turbines in a special cold climate version for three wind farms totaling 30 megawatts (MW) of installed power. The wind farms, named "Whispering Woods" (10 MW) and "Ganaraska" (20 MW), will be located in Southern Ontario's Oshawa region and able to supply electricity to approximately 60,000 homes on an annual basis.

"REpower and its parent company are the third largest turbine manufacturer in the world and we are very pleased to be working with them once again," commented Dr. Ingo Stuckmann, Wind Works' President and CEO. "I was involved in ordering seventeen of these same windmills in 2007 and they are performing with over 98% technical availability. They are a proven and clean technology."

Both the Ganaraska and Whispering Woods wind parks projects have been awarded a Feed-In Tariff power purchase contract by the Ontario Power Authority and environmental studies are currently being completed for each project.

"We are pleased to contribute to the largest climate change initiative in Canada as well as to the sustainable development of the region", says Helmut Herold, Manager of RePower Systems Inc., the turbine manufacturer's Canadian subsidiary. "In fact, the construction of the wind farms will not only provide clean energy, but also create employment for the region. Wind power is perfectly feasible with today's technical resources. It's not a utopian idea and Ontario's Feed-In Tariff program highly stimulates wind energy investments", Mr. Herold added.

The Feed-In Tariff program was enabled by the Green Energy and Green Economy Act which passed into law in May of 2009 and guarantees a certain pricing structure for green energy supply.
