Clean Wind Energy Tower, Inc. (OTCBB: CWET) announced today that on March 29th, 2012 a Public Information Hearing for the City of San Luis, Arizona was held to discuss the construction of Clean Wind Energy's innovative green renewable energy Downdraft Tower Facility within the San Luis City limits. The Downdraft Tower project received a favorable response at the Public Information Hearing and the City of San Luis, has scheduled a Planning and Zoning Commission hearing to be held on April 10, 2012.

The San Luis location incorporates plans for two (2) Downdraft Towers and a component parts Assembly Plant. As designed, the Company anticipates that each Downdraft Tower could generate enough electricity to power up to 1,600,000 homes using the guidelines set forth in the California Statewide Residential Appliance Saturation Study, 2004. As an independent power producer of clean renewable energy, the Company will not be selling power directly to consumers but rather to the grid.

Ronald W. Pickett, President and Chief Executive Officer previously stated, "San Luis is an ideal location for Clean Wind Energy to build our first alternative energy facility because this region of the southwest United States provides the proper weather profiles, proximity to the power grid, and other ingredients beneficial to the operation of a Downdraft Tower, and has been previously targeted as a prime region for alternative energy projects. I am enthusiastic about locating our Downdraft Tower in the United States because not only is this a breakthrough source of clean alternative energy, it will bring significant employment opportunities and economic stimulus to San Luis and a number of U.S. industries. We anticipate that during the Downdraft Tower's construction phase, 2,500 construction and transportation jobs and 1,000 manufacturing jobs will be created. Once placed in service, each Tower should generate 1,000 permanent jobs."
