About Solar Wind Energy, Inc.

Solar Wind Energy, Inc. has, designed, engineered, developed and is preparing to construct large “Solar Wind Downdraft Towers” that use benevolent, non-toxic natural elements to generate electricity economically by integrating and synthesizing numerous proven as well as emerging technologies.

 

In addition to constructing Solar Wind Downdraft Towers in the United States and abroad, the Company intends to establish partnerships at home and abroad to propagate these systems and meet increasing global demand for electricity. Solar Wind Energy has assembled a team of experienced business professionals, engineering and scientific consultants with the proven ability to bring the idea to market. Solar Wind Energy has filed and been issued patents that the Company believes will further enhance this potentially revolutionary technology. Solar Wind Energy, Inc. (Solar Wind Energy) a wholly owned subsidiary of Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc., is based in Annapolis MD, and is traded on the OTCQB under the symbol ‘SWET’.

Innovative Disruptive Renewable Energy Technology

The Solar Wind Downdraft Tower is comprised of a tall hollow cylinder with a water injection system near the top and wind tunnels containing turbines near the bottom. To start, a series of pumps deliver water to the Tower’s injection system at the top where a fine mist is cast across the entire opening. The water introduced by the injection system then evaporates and is absorbed by hot dry air which has been heated by the solar rays of the sun.  As a result, the air becomes cooler, denser and heavier than the outside warmer air, and falls through the cylinder at speeds up to and in excess of 50 mph. This air is then diverted into wind tunnels surrounding the base of the Tower where turbines inside the tunnels power generators to produce electricity.

 

In geographic areas where atmospheric conditions are conducive, the exterior of the Tower may be constructed with vertical “wind vanes” that capture the prevailing wind and channel it to produce supplemental electrical power. This dual renewable energy resource greatly enhances its clean energy-producing capability and productivity. Solar Wind Energy’s Tower is unique in that it does not have any operational limitations in terms of time. It’s capable of operating around the clock, 24 hours per day, seven days per week in contrast to the operational limitations with solar collectors that work only when the sun shines and with wind turbines that work only when the wind blows.

 

The Company has been awarded two major patents (#8120191 “Efficient Energy Conversion Devices & Methods” and #8517662B2 “Atmospheric Energy Extraction Devices & Methods”), has two other patent applications which have been designated with a “Notice of Allowance” (#13/027409 and #13/947625), and is awaiting issuance of the actual patent documents. Solar Wind Energy has judiciously pursued the patent applications that it believes to be are instrumental to the core development of its technology and project.

 

Through consistent innovation, the Company has successfully managed to economize the Tower, reducing capital costs while enhancing projected financial performance. This development was made possible by utilizing the Global Energy Generation Calculator software calculates and predicts energy production of the Towers given a projected location and incorporating that locations’ local weather data. By feeding weather data of its future site location into the program, the Tower’s height and diameter can be adjusted along with the amount of water required as fuel to create a desired amount of energy. The outcome dictates the optimum size of each Tower.

 

Under the most recent design specifications, the first Tower in San Luis, Arizona has a design capacity on an hourly basis of up to 1,250 megawatt hours, gross. Due to lower capacities during winter days, the average hourly output per day for sale to the grid for the entire year is approximately 435 megawatt hours/hr.
