Western Wind Energy Corp. - Tax Credits And Yabucoa Update

TSX.V Symbol: " WND" OTCQX Symbol: "WNDEF" Issued and Outstanding: 69,820,125

VANCOUVER, Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Western Wind Energy Corp. - (the "Company" or "Western Wind") (TSX Venture Exchange - "WND") (OTCQX - "WNDEF") announces an update to its 30 MW Yabucoa solar project located within the municipality of Yabucoa, Puerto Rico. Western Wind has provided revised civil and electrical drawings to the lender's independent engineer for review. Western Wind changed the design to accommodate new inverters after the previous industry respected inverter vender entered into financial restructuring.

Western Wind is continuing to work with the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority ("PREPA") in meeting its new Minimum Technical Requirements for frequency regulation and power control.

The completion of these outstanding technical issues and subsequent financial close will significantly increase the valuation of the entire company, which is consistent to our previous July 30, 2012 news release indicating financial close of Yabucoa is an essential and important milestone needed for shareholders to receive the highest value in the sales process. Financial close will not happen before January 28, 2013 and therefore the current Brookfield bid does not reflect this significant milestone and achievement.

Tax Credits

For the monumental benefit of the entire US wind energy industry, including Western Wind, today the United States Congress approved a vital extension of the Production Tax Credit, the Investment Tax Credit and Bonus Depreciation. The Investment Tax Credit allows 30% of an entire wind project's eligible capital cost to be claimed as a full tax credit to a US taxpayer. In the alternative, the Production Tax Credit allows a credit of 2.2 cents per kwh for 10 years of the project's life, plus an inflation adjuster.

This is phenomenal news for the Western Wind shareholder, as all of our development assets must now be re-evaluated and appraised for their full development potential, as the new credits cover a wide variety of funding options.
