Mack considers WindStor to cut power costs

McKenzie Bay International Ltd has signed an agreement with Mack Trucks Inc to perform a wind resource evaluation for a WindStor configuration at Mack's Middletown PA remanufacturing center that could include one or more Dermond wind turbines.

WindStor Power Co, a McKenzie Bay subsidiary, is proposing to sell electricity to Mack at a fixed rate under a long-term supply arrangement employing jointly owned WindStor equipment. Contingent on confirmation of sufficient wind resource being present to result in favorable pricing, WindStor would reduce electricity costs while minimizing the impact of future rate increases for grid-supplied electricity.

Upon completion of a site resource analysis, an economic evaluation will be made to the effectiveness of the collective project components. Should this prove favorable, an invitation will be extended to WindStor Power Co to evaluate all Mack corporate North American facilities.
