Here Enterprises completes phase I installation at Texas wind farm

Las Vegas, March 3, 2011 Here Enterprises Inc., a developer of clean wind energy, announced completion of the first phase of construction on its Cycle Ranch wind project.

Here Enterprises is pleased to report that the first series of high efficiency variable pitch turbines is now in place at its Floresville, Texas wind park.

Mark Ryun, CEO of Here Enterprises, commented: "The selection, siting and installation of high efficiency wind turbines on our first clean energy project represents a significant milestone for our organization. Here Enterprises anticipates positive returns from the wind farm as we reduce our company's reliance on fossil fuels, begin generating power from renewable energy resources and target local utilities looking to do the same."

Here Enterprises is building wind energy facilities on the site of its wholly owned Cycle Ranch Motocross Park, an established commercial motocross speedway drawing hundreds of fans, spectators and competitors each week. The company has erected a series of Talon turbines to generate clean wind energy on the property.

Talon turbines' leading edge speed regulation system features a passive variable pitch control mechanism. The variable pitch mechanism allows a wider working range than other designs, enabling Talon systems to produce more energy than competing turbines using other speed regulation methods such as tail furling.

Variable pitch technology enables Talon systems to work up to 56 mph. Competing products shut down at high wind speeds rather than continuing to harvest power. The systems produce wind energy with low noise and high efficiency and utilize UL certified electronics for grid-tie approval.

Here Enterprises' Cycle Ranch project demonstrates a shift in dependence on costly, environmentally taxing conventional power sources toward reliable, viable alternatives, in line with the company's green business model. Once tapped into the grid, Here Enterprises intends to sell surplus power generated at the wind farm to Texas utilities, the largest wind energy market in the U.S.
