NORTH VERNON, IN — (Marketwired) — 08/11/15 — WindStream Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: WSTI) (“WindStream” or the “Company”) announced today that it has completed the manufacturing and shipping of the first 360kW’s for Phase 1 of its 2MW installation in Argentina. The first phase of the project totals 1.35MW’s of the Company’s new product line called the PowerMill™. This shipment represents the first deployment of the PowerMill™ and will be used to generate energy that will be managed by the Entity of Electrical Cooperatives and Distributors of the Province of Buenos Aires. This shipment is scheduled to be followed by an additional five shipments to be delivered and installed through September 2015, at which point Phase 1 will be completed. The balance of the 2MW will follow these initial PowerMill™ deployments and are scheduled to be installed by the end of 2015.

The project is being spearheaded by Surland Technologies, one of Argentina’s leading technology importers. “We are very excited to begin installing the PowerMill™ in Argentina and are proud to be the world’s first users of this new technology. This once again shows my country’s commitment to cutting edge technologies and to working toward finding products and solutions that offset the effects of fossil fuels and climate change,” said Christian Schiano, President of Surland.
“This first deployment of the PowerMill™ will showcase the technology in Argentina and provide a platform for follow-on sales to other areas not only in Argentina but throughout Latin America. We expect this product line to be a complement to the needs of countries all over the world that are looking for utility scale generation but lack the available space or resources for conventional systems,” said Claudio Chami, Sr. VP of Sales for Latin America.
The PowerMill™ is a system of wind turbines and solar panels that maximize the available real estate upon which a renewable energy system can be deployed. The PowerMill™ uses the core SolarMill® technology as its foundation and then reconfigures its installation methodology to pack even more power generation into the available space. Other variations of the PowerMill™ are being designed and prototyped by the Company to meet the needs of utility companies, rural electrification projects, and larger consumer needs. The PowerMill™ technology is a plug-and-play micro grid for all types of applications.
