|Sauer Energy, Inc. Reports on Recent Wind Tunnel Test at University of Washington, Seattle|
NEWBURY PARK, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 3, 2011) - Sauer Energy, Inc.™ ("SEI™") (OTCBB: SENY), a developer of home and enterprise scale vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) systems, is pleased to announce that it has once again taken its WindCharger™ to the University of Washington Aeronautical Laboratory ("UWAL") in Seattle, Washington, for wind tunnel testing. Test results have confirmed improved performance of the WindCharger™.
During this multiple-day test, results were obtained that reflect a tip speed efficiency of 76% at 10 mph wind speed. Conversion of torque versus mass has given the WindCharger™ a leading edge. No other turbine company asserts such efficient wind capture at low altitude. A higher rpm at lower wind speeds than earlier results was documented during the testing also.
The benefit of these tests has solidified the production planning and manufacture of future models. Surpassing the expectations, this success results in technology confirmed.
Testing revealed that minor enhancement modifications to the proprietary generator will significantly add efficiency to the WindCharger™, so they are now in the process of being made.
"We are strongly encouraged with our strategy and competitive design and are on target for our planned launch in early 2012. We are more convinced than ever that the WindCharger™ will surpass current parameters in the area of drag, co-efficiency and sustainability. The extensive aerodynamic data that is available validates our extensive R & D program aimed at the effects of turbines on rooftops for energy production," stated Dieter Sauer, CEO and President of Sauer Energy, Inc.™
Sauer Energy's plan is to sustain its position in developing a more competitive edge by striving to become the residential company that sets the standard for rooftop wind energy turbines, unparalleled.
The improvement strategies recently executed have enriched the power of the WindCharger™, which translates to a superior product for the consumer.
About University of Washington Aeronautical Laboratory
The University of Washington Aeronautical Laboratory is a testing organization under the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The primary aerodynamic testing facility is the F. K. Kirsten Wind Tunnel. Opened for testing in 1939, the tunnel itself is a double-return, closed circuit wind tunnel. It is comprised of two 500 horsepower motor drive, 14 foot, 9 inch diameter, seven-blade fans to provide testing for up to 250 mile per hour air speed. For more information, please visit www.uwal.org
