About CTC:

Composite Technology Corporation, based in Irvine, California, USA develops, manufactures and sells high performance electrical transmission and renewable energy generation products through its subsidiaries:

    -- DeWind, Inc., and DeWind Ltd., produce, sell, and license the DeWind
       series of wind energy turbines including the 50Hz D6 rated at 1.25
       megawatts (MW) and the 50Hz D8 rated at 2 MW, both noted for their
       reliability.  In 2007, the first new 2 MW D8.2 turbines are planned to
       be delivered to North American customers from assembly operations at
       TECO Westinghouse Motor Company in Texas. The D8.2 utilizes the
       advanced WinDrive(R) hydrodynamic torque converter developed by Voith
       AG with a synchronous AC generator that is able to connect directly to
       the grid at high voltage without the use of power conversion
       electronics. The DeWind D8.2 will be available in both a 60Hz and 50Hz
    -- CTC Cable Corporation produces composite rod for use in its proprietary
       ACCC (aluminum conductor composite core).  ACCC conductors virtually
       eliminate the sag in power lines caused by high current and high line
       temperatures.  ACCC conductors also reduce electricity line losses, and
       have demonstrated significant savings in capital and operating expenses
       when substituted for other conductors. ACCC conductors enable grid
       operators to reduce blackouts and brownouts, providing a 'reserve
       electrical capacity' by operating at higher temperatures. ACCC
       conductors are an innovative economical solution for reconductoring
       power lines, constructing new lines and crossing large spans. ACCC
       composite rod is delivered to qualified conductor manufacturers
       worldwide for local ACCC conductor production and resale into local
