New Direction Blowing in the Wind for Clean Wind Energy Tower, Inc. (OTCBB: CWET)

New Direction Blowing in the Wind for Clean Wind Energy Tower, Inc. (OTCBB: CWET)

Ron Pickett, President &; CEO Shares Vision of New Strategy for Downdraft Tower Moving Forward

Point Roberts WA-October 5, 2011 ( renewable energy/green newswire), a leader in cleantech investor research, releases the following Q&A interview with Ron Pickett, President & CEO of Clean Wind Energy Tower, Inc. (OTCBB: CWET) following recent news from the Company on a change of business direction moving forward.

Ron , in your recent press release you stated “the Company is transitioning from a "Research and Development Stage" company to the actual development of our first Dual Renewable Energy Tower project .” For new investors looking at the Company, can you explain the Downdraft tower and the new direction you are taking?

A: Ron Pickett, President &; CEO

Our Downdraft Tower is simply a large hollow cylinder located in a very dry area like the Southwestern United States. We spray a fine mist of water near the top of the tower. The hot dry air absorbs the water, which becomes heavier, and sinks downward within the hollow cylinder creating a natural downdraft that is contained inside the tower. Turbines at the base of the tower power generators to make abundant electricity 24/7.

The next direction for the Company is to bring onboard an expert Development Team transitioning the Company from its research stage to actually developing the first Tower. That team will augment the development skills of existing management and combine them with the expertise of internationally recognized engineers, architects and contractors.

Why hasn’t this technology been deployed previously and how did a small Company like yours get access to it?

A: Ron Pickett, President &; CEO

The technology or “technique” of creating a downdraft and containing it to harness wind energy was thoroughly studied by the Technion in Israel decades ago. The key to deployment rests with now proven construction techniques to erect the large tower combined with turbine and generator enhancements to extract maximum power from the downdraft.

You also announced a change in share structure and a return to treasury of 120M plus shares . What does that mean to investors?

A: Ron Pickett, President & CEO

The Company recently announced that it had returned 120 million shares to treasury. This simply means that the total number of shares outstanding has been reduced from approximately 330M to 210M. That’s about a 50% increase in value per share.

What is the scope of a project like this in terms of feasibility, funding and then return on investment?

A: Ron Pickett, President &; CEO

The financial feasibility of this project should be excellent. Our target is to present the first Tower project for financing with cash flow to support its debt with a 2:1 coverage. Unlike other “Green” Alternative Energy projects, which need subsidies and special financial incentives, our Tower is designed to be very profitable. The Dual Renewable Energy Tower is a totally “Green” project that generates a lot of “Green” profit.

As investors have recently witnessed the failing of large scale solar companies like Solyndra that were funded by Government and investors – how do you differentiate a project on the scale you are undertaking and how are you sure it will succeed?

A: Ron Pickett, President &; CEO

As stated above, traditional solar and wind projects need to be subsidized. Not so with our project. We will certainly seek to take advantage of any and all programs for tax-exempt bond financing and for tax and carbon credits. Nevertheless, we anticipate that our first project will be able to generate twice the cash flow before taxes necessary to service the required financing.

Windmills may be clean energy But they do look really bad.
