Shrewsbury, Massachusetts – October 16, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] With the design of its 50 kW Multiaxis Turbosystem (MAT) nearly completed, Mass Megawatts has chosen a high-wind site south of Bakersfield, California which already supports electrical interconnection facilities and wind energy related zoning requirements. The design will also be used in Iceland. However, final testing and third party analysis must be conducted before any construction outside the country for logistical reasons and convenience of final changes during the prototyping stage. Smaller than the full size 360 kW MAT, the 50 kW is compatible with a wider array of terrain. Capacity can be increased incrementally simply by adding additional units next to existing ones, according to the company. Mass Megawatts is working toward producing clean, cost-effective wind generated power capitalizing on a new wind turbine design, the MAT, that uses less material, costs less, and has smaller blades than traditional wind turbines. MAT technology allows production of electricity at less than 2.5 cents per kWh in high wind areas exceeding a 16 miles per hour average wind speed at thirty meters above ground level.
