National Wind Assessments Awarded Unusual Product Endorsement From Safety Gear Manufacturer

Minneapolis, Minnesota - May 30, 2008 – A safety, work-gear manufacturer doesn’t usually give a product endorsement to a wind power developer, until now. National Wind Assessments announces today that it has received an endorsement contract from Ergodyne Work Gear, based out of St. Paul, Minnesota.

But the question remains, why a product endorsement for a wind-related company?

"National Wind Assessments and its parent company, National Wind have received a lot of press coverage and will soon be featured in an episode of Sustainable Planet, on National Geographic. When the filming takes place, they will be wearing our products," says Howard Huber, Marketing Director, Ergodyne Work Gear. "We strongly believe in creating partnerships and relationships with high profile companies such as this, to showcase our innovative products."

National Wind Assessments will utilize the company’s safety products, such as gloves, outerwear, elbow pads, back supports, and visibility vests when they complete on-site installations of meteorological towers and when they are photographed and filmed. National Wind Assessments will be featured in Ergodyne’s upcoming promotional materials.

"We are thrilled to endorse Ergodyne," says Kevin Romuld, President of National Wind Assessments. "We feel a bit like a sports superstar. However, our employees love the gear and it helps us do our jobs safely. Ergodyne has a great, high-quality product line."

National Wind Assessments has completed advanced wind resource analysis for over 100 wind energy projects across the United States.

The company was recently selected by Nebraska’s largest electric utility, the Nebraska Public Power District, to install 10 meteorological towers in northern Nebraska. This will be the first project where National Wind Assessments will utilize Ergodyne’s gear.
