Worcester, MA, United States — ESI-AFRICA.COM — 06 April 2011 – Mass Megawatts Wind Power, Incorporated “’ a leading company in the development of revolutionary wind power technology “’ has introduced to the renewable energy marketplace a product capable of producing electricity at a cost 30% lower than other wind power equipment.

Announcing this in a statement issued here, the company said that “’ designed on a paradigm that lower height, lower wind speeds and lower costs equal higher profits “’ this technology put MAT electricity generation on a competitive footing with fossil fuels, such as coal and natural gas.

Mass Megawatts holds exclusive patent rights to the Multi-Axis Turbo system (MAT) for 11% of the global territory, with 50% territorial rights in the United States. Installed wind energy in the U.S. Market is growing by over 25% annually.

Energy planners nationwide have been seeking an adaptable, scalable wind power solution that will be welcomed by local communities, and Mass Megawatts MAT technology meets this challenge on every level. Adaptable to both high and lower wind resource regions and economically scalable to meet electric supply requirements from small users to large utilities, the MAT technology is the first wind power technology that allows purchasers to size their electric generation facility to fit their usage needs.

Traditionally, wind power adopters have found themselves in the position of having to purchase systems that either provided more generation capacity then they needed, or, conversely, walk away shorthanded. The MAT’s modular technology basis puts the ‘sizing’ decision-making on the customer’s side of the table, not the vendor’s.

Ranging between 50 feet to a maximum of 80 feet in overall height, MAT units boast extremely productive generation capability in areas with lower wind speeds, where tall tower utility-scaled projects are simply not financially feasible or successful.

Projected maintenance costs are 50% less than the wind power industry’s average, the equipment is rated to withstand winds of up to 120 mph, and all mechanical and electrical components are located close to ground level. Also, the geographic footprint of lower wind speed regions both suitable and profitable for MAT technology is several times greater than that of tall tower wind.
