The Distributed Wind Energy Association Expands Outreach to Farm Shows in Midwest and Northeast

Presence at Events Designed to Educate Agricultural Industry and Rural Consumers About Benefits of Distributed Wind

Flagstaff, AZ, July 31, 2012 - The Distributed Wind Energy Association

(DWEA) today announced that it will have a presence at two farm shows this
month in the Midwest and Northeast, where the association and its members
will discuss the benefits of wind energy to farming professionals and rural
communities. By attending these shows, DWEA hopes to expand the footprint
for the Distributed and Community Wind Industry within the agricultural
market.

The Empire Farm Days in Seneca Falls, N.Y., and the Farm Progress Show in
Boone, Iowa, will enable DWEA to reach out to the rural marketplace and
provide a platform to help educate consumers on the significant economic
benefits of distributed wind for those in the agricultural sector. DWEA
will be hosting a series of discussions on distributed wind energy lead by
Jennifer Jenkins, DWEA's executive director. The shows provide DWEA members
with a unique opportunity to showcase an array of products with systems
ranging from 5kW up to 900kW.

"Participating in the farm shows this year shows marks a first for DWEA and
its members," Jenkins said. "We continue to forge new paths on behalf of our
members, whether it involves opening new markets or advocating on national
policy. Our community is proud to support rural markets and bring the power
of wind to America's Heartland. From farm to table, wind is an integral
piece of energy independence for all communities and industries."

The Distributed and Community Wind Industry offers the rural market
significant advantages by providing clean, emissions-free, locally produced
electricity. Distributed wind energy in rural communities creates economic
development in the form of new jobs, new industry and associated growth and
spending. By providing products specific to this market, DWEA members will
be able to expand its outreach to new communities and create new
partnerships.

primary mission is to promote and foster all aspects of the American
distributed wind energy industry. Distributed wind, commonly referred to as
small and community wind, is the use of typically smaller wind turbines at
homes, farms, businesses, and public facilities to off-set all or a portion
of on-site energy consumption. DWEA seeks to attract members and associates
from all sectors with relevant interests pertaining to the distributed wind
industry. For more information on DWEA, please go to
