Solar Wind Energy, Inc. (“Solar Wind Energy”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc. (OTCQB:SWET), was established to commercialize a number of proven and validated technologies and construction systems into a single large Solar Wind Downdraft Tower structure that produces abundant inexpensive electricity.

Solar Wind Energy has designed, engineered, developed and is preparing to construct large “Solar Wind Downdraft Towers” that use benevolent, non-toxic natural elements to generate electricity economically by integrating and synthesizing numerous proven as well as emerging technologies.

The company’s core objective and focus is to become a leading provider of clean efficient green energy to the world communities at a reasonable cost without the destructive residuals of fossil fuel, while continuing to generate innovative technological solutions for today and tomorrow’s electrical power needs.

In addition, the company intends to establish partnerships at home and abroad to propagate its Solar Wind Downdraft Towers systems and meet increasing global demand for electricity. Solar Wind has filed several patents that the Company believes will further enhance this potentially revolutionary technology.

The Tower

Tower at a Glance

Avoids the adverse effects associated with fossil and nuclear fuels.
Is capable of operating 24/7 and can outperform solar collectors that produce only when the sun shines in the daytime and wind turbines that produce only when the wind blows.
Has the capability of being operated with virtually no carbon footprint, fuel consumption or waste production.
Has the potential to generate clean, cost effective and efficient electrical power without the damaging effects caused by using fossil or nuclear fuels, and other known alternative power sources.
Uses benevolent non-toxic natural elements to generate electricity.

Tower Specifics

Tower ImageThe Solar Wind Downdraft Tower is a tall hollow cylinder with a water injection system near the top. Pumps deliver water to the Tower’s injection system where a fine mist is cast across the entire opening.

The water introduced by the injection system evaporates and is absorbed by the hot dry air which has been heated by the solar rays of the sun. The air becomes cooler, denser and heavier than the outside warmer air and falls through the cylinder at speeds up to and in excess of 50 mph and is diverted into wind tunnels surrounding the base of the Tower where turbines inside the tunnels power generators to produce electricity.

In geographic areas where atmospheric conditions are conducive, the exterior of the Tower may be constructed with vertical “wind vanes” that capture the prevailing wind and channel it to produce supplemental electrical power. This dual renewable energy resource enhances the capability and productivity of the Solar Wind system.

Various parties in the United States and other nations are pursuing clean energy solutions that use efficient and cost-effective renewable resources to serve society while avoiding the adverse environmental effects and the obvious limitations of solar and wind turbine technologies.

The Tower has the capability of being operated with virtually no carbon footprint, fuel consumption, or waste production. The technology will generate clean, cost effective and efficient electrical power without the damaging effects caused by using fossil or nuclear fuels, and other known alternative power sources. The Company also believes that the increasing emphasis on green technologies and governmental incentives in the energy industry should have a positive long-term effect on the Company’s planned business and the solar and wind energy industry in general.

The Company has downsized the Tower to reduce capital costs and improve projected financial performance. The Company recently announced the completion of weather data models that confirm that the first Tower height can be lowered from 3,000 feet down to 2,250 feet. This development was made possible by utilizing Solar Wind’s software which can calculate and predict energy production by the Tower’s given local weather data.

Under the most recent design specifications, the first San Luis Tower has a design capacity on an hourly basis, of up to 1250 megawatt hours, gross. Using a 60% capacity factor, the Tower’s potential hourly yield would be 600 megawatt hours from which approximately 18.5% will be used to power its operations, yielding approximately 500 megawatt hours available for sale to the power grid. Due to lower capacities during winter days, the average daily output for sale to the grid for the entire year is approximately 435 megawatt hours.

Since the Towers will be constructed using conventional materials, equipment and techniques, associated industries will benefit significantly by the creation of the Tower. The Tower will provide clean renewable energy at a cost more favorable than nuclear plants with no negative impacts to our planet.

Full development and deployment of the Tower will create thousands of construction, transportation, and manufacturing jobs. It will also provide ongoing economic stability, creating more than 1,000 permanent jobs per Tower at both skilled and professional levels.



The Company uses its software-based analytical program to determine the energy generation capabilities of its Solar Wind Downdraft Towers based on the climate in geographic locations around the world.

This essential tool applies “known” scientific meteorology data to pin-point specific weather conditions of a specific area to the Tower’s variables in order to determine and project energy outputs on a daily basis.
Solar Wind Energy can now rapidly respond to a request from virtually any country reasonably suitable to host a project and determine specifically where the Tower should be located, the size of the Tower and the amount of electricity it can produce.
This analytical tool, combined with the Company’s proprietary operating systems technology and existing core patents, clearly provides the Company with a unique opportunity to allow global positioning of this alternative solution to the world’s energy needs.


The Company has filed several patent applications with the U.S. Patent Office to protect its technology including:

Improved Wind Energy Power Transmission System – To more effectively transmit energy via a new multi-stage variable hydraulic drive system that operates efficiently through a very broad range of wind and turbine speeds. Patent Issued.
Atmospheric Energy Extraction Devices and Methods – Incorporates the entire core Tower structure, including the injection of moisture as a catalyst to generate the downdraft wind, and the additional exterior dual wind capture vanes. Patent Approved - Awaiting Issuance.
Energy Tower Having External Wind Capturing Capacity – To supplement the available energy of an energy tower by capturing existing winds aloft (800 - 4,000 ft). Patent Pending.
