TORONTO, Sept. 14, 2011 /CNW/ - Cleanfield Alternative Energy Inc. ("Cleanfield") (TSX VENTURE: AIR), is proud to
announce that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has assigned patent
number (US 8,013,464 B2) to Cleanfield for VAWT's defined as a "power
generating system including modular wind turbine-generator assembly."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark
Office states: "A power generating system for generating electricity
from the kinetic energy of a wind flow. The power generating system
includes a turbine assembly, and a generator assembly, and may provided
a main brake assembly, as well as an emergency brake assembly. The
system includes a series of modular components, which can be built and
adjusted in a modular manner so as to alter the configuration of the
system, and thus maximize a generation of electricity by the system,
depending on the particular conditions of the wind flow. Other
improvements reside in the mounting spokes and aerodynamic blades of
the system, as well as in its main brake assembly." In addition to the
U.S. patent, Cleanfield also has provisional patent applications for
Canada and Europe.

dominate VAWT company with a commercially proven product and broad
patent coverage. This patent essentially covers any and all vertical
axis wind turbines sold in the U.S. and Cleanfield is prepared to
vigorously defend its intellectual property rights."
