WindPower Solutions Announced That Its Next Generation 85kW Wind Turbine Has Successfully Completed Its 100,000 Kilowatt Hour Test and Is Now Ready for the Market

Windpower Solutions Is a Wholly-Owned Subsidiary of WindPower Innovations

QUEEN CREEK, AZ--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) - WindPower Innovations, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WPNV) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, WindPower Solutions, has reached a milestone with its next generation 85 kW wind turbine having successfully generated over 100,000 kWh. The 85 kW wind turbine was manufactured in Phoenix, AZ and installed in Palm Springs, CA and is now ready for the market.

The "next-generation" 85kW wind turbines are perfect for any remote location with abundant wind. In addition to new installs, they are designed to replace the 65KW turbines and therefore generate 30% more energy from the same tower. WindPower Solutions will soon begin marketing this new 85 kW wind turbine to rural towns, schools, farmers, ranchers and other groups and individuals that can benefit from WindPower's advanced wind turbine technologies. With this development, WindPower Innovations is further prepared to target the small wind turbine market.

John Myers, CEO of WindPower Innovations and WindPower Solutions said, "It is great to build a machine like this with state-of-the-art controllers and heavy-duty breaking systems. It also has a heavy-duty gearbox assembly with a good service factor." He continued, "With the acquisition of RIG construction, we now have the ability to construct the concrete foundations for new wind turbine towers as well."

Larry Duffy, CEO of RIG Construction said, "With our 30 years of experience in building concrete foundations, we are looking forward to working together with WindPower Solutions to construct the structural foundations for the wind turbine towers at a lower cost to end users."
