Mass Megawatts Releases Video Of Its "Windfuture 2013" Prototype

WORCESTER, Mass., Oct. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mass Megawatts Wind Power, Inc.(OTC: MMMW) reports that it is nearing project completion for its prototype, wind augmentation system installed near Worcester, Massachusetts. Initial results indicate a significant increase in wind-power generation levels for turbines that utilize the company's patented, augmentation system. A video of the prototype can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I__qE8YxPTE . Further testing will be required in order to confirm long term results.

The company's prototype system implements three identical, 4' Air Breeze turbines. Two are installed next to the augmentation cylinder, while the third turbine is installed separately, away from the augmenter. Early findings show that the augmented turbines are reaching a substantially higher rate of acceleration as compared to the non-augmented turbine. This increased blade acceleration results in higher wind-energy production for the life of the turbine, while requiring only a marginal increase in the initial implementation cost. Mass Megawatts will continue to monitor and report results at the Charlton prototype.

The Mass Megawatts' wind augmentation system utilizes a less complicated and inexpensive wind-focusing technique to increase the wind velocity directed at the turbine by an average of 70%. This accelerated wind speed, in turn, results in a significant, three-fold increase in the electrical power generated by the turbine.

The Company's augmentation system eliminates the need for turbine structures to exceed a height of 80 feet to realize adequate wind velocity. This reduces material and installation costs while expediting zoning approval in many locations. Additionally, the augmenter technology makes it possible for turbines to operate profitably in lower wind-speed locations.

Using horizontal or propeller type turbine blades, the cost per rated kilowatt is projected to be less than $1000 and anticipated to approach $600 in mass production. This compares very favorably with traditional wind power systems that realize a cost of $1500 to $2000 per rated kilowatt.

With its patented, wind augmentation system, and very little debt, Mass Megawatts believes it is well positioned to ramp-up production of its new augmentation units in the shorter term while expanding its infrastructure to support mass-production goals in the longer term.
