About the Company

Prime Energy Corporation® was established to develop the PowerJetTM wind turbine — a revolutionary horizontal axis turbine designed for use in the small wind market. Initial private investments of $2.5 million enabled Prime Energy® to perfect the PowerJetTM's design and to optimize the turbine's performance.

Final design and testing were completed in 2008, funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy and in-kind contributions.

Prime Energy® is exhibiting the PowerJetTM wind turbine in December 2010 at AWEA's 2nd Annual Small & Community Wind Conference to be held in Portland, Oregon.

Prime Energy® plans to commence commercial production of the 1-meter PowerJetTM wind turbine in 2011, with the 3-meter turbine to follow.
