TMA’s technology breakthrough has allowed the company to develop a revolutionary
vertical axis turbine for commercial entry into the fastest-growing segment of
the global energy market, wind power. Global wind power growth has
averaged 30% per year for the past 11 years and, with ever
increasing costs of fossil fuels, increasing sensitivity regarding
the killing of Federally Protected Avian Species, and with
major global warming concerns, TMA’s wind turbine
and its leading edge technology is positioned to be
extremely successful in the world market.

The TMA turbine offers substantial advantages

over conventional propeller-style wind turbines.
Functionality, ease of maintenance and operation,
lack of electronic interference, no ground
resonance, a more acceptable profile, quieter in
operation than propeller-style turbines and no
bird or bat kills in over 11 years of turbine operations.
During 2005/2006 we had tremendous success in improving the aerodynamic design and efficiency of our
turbine. A more efficient turbine means a smaller and less costly commercial unit. The results of TMA’s unique,
three-tiered approach to evaluating the performance characteristics of our turbine are a resounding success.
We have increased the efficiency of our wind tunnel prototypes from 21% to over 45% throughout the
entire power curve (CPP Wind Engineering Consultants verification). Additionally, we have simplified the
construction procedures. The conclusions derived from the computational fluid dynamics, wind tunnel
testing, and field studies of the existing turbines have confirmed the capabilities of the design and validated
the scalability for larger turbine units up to 500 kilowatt. This has enabled TMA to define the power
performance characteristics giving TMA turbines a power curve that is superior to many of the best propeller
turbines being utilized today.
We have developed high profile relationships with various corporations regarding the licensing and
manufacturing of TMA’s products both nationally and internationally. We have procedures in place to protect
our intellectual property for our current designs and future applications. TMA has been issued three USA
patents, a South African patent, Australian patent, Taiwanese patent, European patent and is filing patents in
Japan, China, Canada, Singapore and India as well as filing multiple applications on technology
improvements related to the issued patents. We continue to focus our efforts on activities that keep us on the
path of getting our technology commercialized and certified as to performance and reliability. From an
operations perspective we have upgraded our bookkeeping, accounting, budgeting and forecasting
processes for improved management systems. Our major objective for 2007 is to consummate product sales
to governments, corporations, wind farm project developers and individuals of TMA’s commercial sized
turbines from 25 kW to 500 kilowatts in size.
The company owns a fully licensed wind farm consisting of 1,280 acres in a superior wind regime, and with
a Power Purchase Agreement and substation in place, the property carries a value of over $6 Million USD. We
have 30 years remaining on a lease for 11,000 acres in Wyoming in a strong wind area. Previously these two
properties have only been utilized for testing and operation of our prototype units. However, since they are
prime development properties, TMA has partnered with a wind energy developer and under a Joint Venture
LLC Agreement, and is in the process of developing these properties to generate cash flow for TMA and our
shareholders while we complete our mission of commercializing TMA’s technology.

2002, Taiwan in 2002, and the European Patent in 2005, which comes as part of a “ bundle” of patents
encompassing 18 additional European countries. Additionally, TMA has multiple other patents and filings
pending. TMA’s technologies are very cost competitive. The technology development and testing of wind
tunnel proto-types and commercially sized turbines has been qualified through a world renowned wind
engineering firm. TMA’s turbines are considered more efficient in operating under similar conditions than
competitive technologies. TMA’s engineers, and the firms we have engaged for their extensive expertise,
have designed and developed the initial power conditioning, control system engineering and
instrumentation. TMA, is developing a unique software, power control package, which will assist in the
protection of TMA’s intellectual property. Future electrical control systems will come from multiple sources
so as to maintain a more beneficial price and delivery structure for TMA.

There are few direct competitors for vertical axis omni, or singularly directional, wind energy turbines.
However, there is a select contingent of companies marketing the horizontal propeller turbines including
NEG Micon/Vestas, GE Wind Energy, and Siemens Corp, none of which have the high wind capabilities and
operating range of the TMA turbines. The many unique features of TMA’s vertical axis turbines provide a
substantial competitive advantage in the marketplace particularly considering: no bird kill, no field of
magnetic resonance, no interference with aircraft communication or navigation, no ground resonance, and
less noise during operation than any competitive wind technology.

Conventional prop style technology spans an efficiency average of

12-43% throughout their operation range, dependent on wind speed
and other environmental and climatic conditions.

Advantages of the TMA turbine over the prop style technology

• One of the most efficient vertical wind turbine in the world.
• The greater efficiency provides a higher capacity factor at like prevailing wind speeds
• Easier to operate and control in all aspects of operation and shut down procedures
• Operates in high or gusting wind and icing conditions when prop turbines shut down resulting in a
longer period of effective power production
• Lower (O&M) operating and maintenance costs on an annual basis
• Lower profile turbines that appear as buildings, creating less “visual pollution”
• Significantly less rotor strobe effect compared to the high rotation speeds of the propeller blades
• No bird or bat kills resulting in better support from environmental groups and Government agencies
• Ease of maintenance and inspections at ground level on all major components as opposed to 250-300’ in
the air at the nacelle or hub height
• Lower tip speed ratio by almost 7 times compared to props reducing speed, vibration, fatigue, static, flex
and other load stress profiles

The chart above illustrates the TMA Vertical Turbine power curve, based on the wind tunnel and
proto-type testing, versus competing propeller technologies

Nearly all, large commercial wind turbines are rated for full nameplate capacity at wind speeds of 13-15
meters/second (m/s) with 15 m/s (33.6 mph) being the most common. As can be seen from this graph TMA
achieves the full name-plate (1 MW) rating at less than 33 mph. Note that this has been done with a rotor that
is 1/2 the size of the equivalent propeller turbine and at a much lower height.
TMA, in its ongoing research and development program, will continue to explore additional factors which will
allow the company to develop a turbine that has an even higher efficiency in the mid-speed wind range. We
have three fundamental factors motivating us: (1) average wind speeds in most locations are under 33.6 mph
(Class 5 and 6 wind areas average between 13.4 to 15.7 mph and these are considered windy, (2) due to the
semi-omni-directional nature of the TMA turbine, the average efficiency will be about 5-8% less when the wind
comes from the opposite direction than the peak efficiency achieved by siting the main airfoil into the
prevailing wind direction (dependent upon the turbine site), and (3) while the relatively short height of our
turbine has other advantages versus props, wind generally increases with elevation resulting in about 3 mph
lower winds at our mid turbine height than those available at a height of 250 to 350 feet above ground level.
This lower speed is offset by the significant velocity increase of the wind source, as it is processed by the TMA
turbine. Additionally, while we have very few if any current competitors in the higher rated wind regimes Class
6 and above, the benefits of TMA’s higher efficiency turbine in lower wind speeds opens a much larger segment
of the national and world markets to the company resulting in more sales and greater returns for our investor /
shareholders. The additional range of operable wind speeds with the TMA turbine is shown in the chart above, TMA
will have a 15% to 20% broader power production range than a comparably sized Propeller unit.

Power generated from wind is the most rapidly growing renewable energy globally, with approximately
59,000 megawatts (MW) installed in 2005 and in excess of 74,000 MW installed in 2006. Wind accounts for less
than 1% of the global electricity market but is the fastest-growing segment in the energy industry, averaging
nearly 30% yearly growth for the last 8 years. As more countries adopt and implement the Kyoto emission
accords, the rate of growth will likely increase. Wind is recognized as being the most economical of all
renewable technologies such as solar, biomass and geothermal.

The major advantages of wind versus conventional fossil-fuel-fired generators are that a) there are no fuel
costs, b) there are no air or water pollutants and c) no greenhouse gases are generated or released. This is
offset somewhat by higher capital costs per unit of capacity and variable output due to changing wind
speeds. With the construction of new transmission lines in various regions of the US, and better weather
forecasting, for power scheduling, wind is becoming a more viable source of energy.

At present, nearly all installed commercial wind installations use horizontal-axis turbines, (propeller style
systems) in which the blades can have a diameter of more than 300 feet. The most recent installed cost of
props in commercial developments varies from $1.35 up to $ 1.5 million per MW depending on supplier,
location and prevailing weather conditions.

The power contained in the wind is related to the wind speed cubed. When the wind speed doubles from 15
to 30 miles per hour [mph], the amount of available power increases 8 times.

There has been significant global interest in TMA’s technology ranging from small, individual-use systems
(less than 5 kilowatts) up to large units of over 00 kW, which will be part of large wind farms. In the last
2-years significant progress has been made in wind tunnel testing and modeling, resulting in design changes
that have increased efficiency and reduced the number of turbine components and subsequent installation
costs. Technology development will continue as a course of business to further enhance TMA’s position in the
world market.

Strategic Objectives
All activities in 2005 / 06 were part of a two-year program to prepare the TMA turbine for market entry. A
major milestone in 2006 / 07 was the completion of the construction and operation of a 25kW vertical
turbine of the latest design to validate the wind tunnel test results and certify the power curves.

Another major objective in 2007 is to prove the technology for the vertical turbines in a larger 250 kW
commercial size unit. This will be achieved via construction and operation of a 250 kW prototype on the King
Ranch site in Wyoming. In addition, the technology development group will focus on cost reduction efforts
for the commercial-sized turbines scheduled for 2007 & 2008. TMA will analyze areas such as materials of
construction, construction techniques, and electrical generator software and control systems. Other
activities occurring are continued upgrading of office systems, intellectual property protection, and web site
Business Development will focus on two main areas in 2007: 1) better understanding of the markets where
TMA turbines will or can have an advantage over props (the niche market ) and 2) working with other wind
developers to do a combined technology installation on parts of the King Ranch or Simpson Ridge properties
to assist with generating near-term cash flow. TMA has signed a Letter of Intent with a development group
for a phase #1 project of 200+Megawatts on the King Ranch in Wyoming.

From a financial perspective, fund-raising to get to milestone 1 was the top priority in 2005 / 06. In 2007, the
focus of our activities will be to achieve milestone 2, scaling up the prototypes into 250 and 500 kW
commercial-sized turbines, negotiating manufacturing and supplier agreements, promoting business
development and preparation for the first round of niche market wind farm developments. Finally preparing
for the final round of project funding, in early to mid 2007.

The markets for the TMA turbines are business, agricultural, distributed generation applications as well as
large wind farms; however, there are many other possible markets for the technology, some of which are
listed below. We have chosen to set aside these opportunities for now, so that we can focus on getting our
primary product to market. Our activities will be directed at protecting the intellectual property with patents
and perhaps partnering with others who can bring funds and other skill-sets to assist with developing and
commercializing the TMA wind turbine technology.

• Two classes of smaller systems, individual-residence size (1 kW) and sub-division size units from (10 to 250
kW capacity). Both are potentially large, lucrative markets.

• Props continue to become larger for economy of scale reasons to try to drive down their installed cost per
MW. The same will be true for TMA turbines up to a 500kW turbine system. The economies of scale will
confirm the increase in profitability without compromising quality and enable TMA to maintain a
competitive edge.

• Technology licensing. We have had a high level of interest from companies in the United States, Canada,
Japan, South and Central America as well as China to license our technology. We are keeping the interest
level high on these opportunities and are negotiating with several entities regarding licensing agreements.
We will reserve any and all IP and technical data until all IP and patent filing is completed in the countries
of interest.

Business Model
The TMA business model includes two different markets for our turbines.
Distributed Generation or Niche Market: A very lucrative market is one of distributed generation.
Higher sales prices of turbines and kilowatts produced in those areas where props are not allowed or desired.
This is largely an untapped market where there are no active wind developers since all of the presently
commercially available systems today are prop-based. In these instances we will be joint venture partners or
the actual developers and use our own technology. Our plan is to identify potential project owners, which we
have in several instances, prior to commencing with construction and sell down our interest as soon as
possible after the wind farms are operational.
Open Market: The open and the larger market is the one in which we compete head-to-head with props. It
will be 12 to 18 months before we get the costs of our systems down to those of the props. Due to the
competition, this is a lower margin market, albeit a very large one. For the same reasons referred to above, we
prefer not to become owner/operators in this market. In order to maximize market penetration, we have
chosen to be technology providers to the wind developers in this market rather than competing with the
existing developers.
By the time we enter this larger market we will have developed and refined project, and through our
strategic partners, construction management skills. At this point we will have the option of marketing the
technology for others to install or provide installed, operational units.

We will focus on the U.S. and Canada but we also recognize the large potential in the global markets, which
is evolving very rapidly and has shown a high degree of interest in TMA’s technology.

The installed capacity in Western Europe market is about 5 times as large as in North America. In 2006 there
was about 3 times as much capacity installed there versus North America. One of the ramifications of the
U.N. Kyoto accords is that many developed and developing countries are increasingly turning to
renewables, particularly wind, for their power supply. The only limitation on our entry into the international
markets will be our corporate size and financial capability.

Marketing Agreement:
TMA has a long-term marketing agreement in place with Rocky Mountain Alternative Technology Inc.
(RMAT) for 38 countries including most of Western Europe, Australia, Chile, South Africa and several other
countries. As we are moving into product commercialization, RMAT’s marketing activity has accelerated

Construction and Local Employment:

At the appropriate time and where possible with international or local government aide and or private
funding, TMA will provide license and manufacturing rights to local or regional companies who can comply
with the financial, IP Protection requirements, local employment and other quality requirements that will
be deemed appropriate for this type of business. Since the timing of the international market entry is after
the construction of the newest turbine design, the company has the benefit of passing on the learning’s
from its own local construction program. The plan for the international market is to initially sell systems
with installation performed by local crews overseen by TMA.

Licensing the TMA Technology:

We have been approached by a number of companies who want technology-licensing agreements for the
United States, Canada, Japan, China, South and Central America and other global destinations. Given the
proper intellectual property protection and pricing mechanisms, this is a good vehicle for rapid yet
controlled international expansion without many of the distractions that typically accompany such a step.
The management of TMA recognizes the advantages of licensing agreements, which form part of this plan.
The positive aspects relative to well-structured license agreements have the benefits of increased
marketability of the technology, higher product profile with lower capital expenditure and reduced direct
long-term marketing costs. Other benefits include a more effective use of TMA management resources, a
localized and more effective marketing plan utilizing local employment and other local or regional
resources, and very importantly a consistent revenue stream for TMA and its licensees based on the nature
or type of license and or manufacturing agreement in place.
