BALTIMORE, Sept. 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kalahari Greentech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:KHGT) released a statement today that company representatives have begun testing the Wind Generator's turbine blades. The test objectives will measure the total lift force generated by the airflow velocities, as well as the various angles of attack at various temperatures and relative humidity.

The data collected will be used to refine the configuration in the internal chambers of the wind generator, thus making the unit as effective and efficient as possible.

Wind and solar are fast becoming the leading sources of renewable energy, which puts Kalahari Greentech in the right place at the right time. Kalahari Greentech designs, produces and provides wind turbines, solar collectors and other sustainable energy technologies. Nearly $2 billion in money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act has been spent on wind power, funding the creation of enough new wind farms to power 2.4 million homes over the past year.

In a Bloomberg Business Week article, General Electric Co. said it expects global industry-wide sales for land-based wind turbines to grow by $130 billion in the next two years. (Source: http://www.businessweek.com/news/2010-03-02/ge-sees-130-bln-jump-in-land-turbine-sales-by-2012-update1-.html ).

Kalahari's Wind Generator concentrates wind energy in a manner such that it can generate electric power at speeds usually too slow for conventional wind generators to produce any meaningful energy, or to even operate. It can also be modified to operate in water. For instance, it can be utilized in streams, rivers and tidal basins.
