The Market: An Immediate Opportunity
The Wind power market is growing at a rapid rate. A 16% increase from 2011 to 2012 and a 3,600% increase over the past 15 years. NWPN’s primary focus is on building a stronghold in the wind turbine business, which had global sales of $75 billion (USD) for 44.0 Gigawatts of wind turbine installations in 2012.
The Solution: The NOW Corporation Offers a Proprietary, Patent-Pending Technology that it believes will disrupt the conventional means of wind power generation, and redefine what will be described as the best-in-class technology for wind power generation.

The Now Corporation has positioned itself to be a key player in the wind power market by acquiring the distribution rights to the patent pending exoPOWER wind turbine systems. The Company anticipates by aggressively marketing the exoPOWER wind turbine systems it will look to replace older model conventional three-blade HAWT (horizontal axis wind turbine), displace diesel power generators, and to take advantage of emerging opportunities where the applications and installations of the conventional HAWT are limited or prohibited because of design limitations in a robust territory.
Key Investor Points:
• NWPN believes the exoPOWER wind turbine systems could be a disruptive technology that can revolutionize the way wind is going to be harnessed to generate power due to its innovative design which creates a new class of wind turbines.
• The company is also positioning itself for supplying all of the energy for the new revolution in growing Marijuana and hemp for the medical business.
• NWPN has secured distribution rights to wind markets that are both very well developed, with an installed capacity of nearly 31 Gigawatts (source: AWEA), and holds tremendous opportunity for further expansion with over 30 Gigawatts of planned installations (source: AWEA).
• Expanded Territorial rights – the territorial rights for the distribution of exoPOWER wind turbine systems for the small and mid-wind sectors includes the states of California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota
• The Company will collaborate with SP Power Farm Group Ltd., the Intellectual Property owner of the exoPOWER windTURBINE System, and assist in its development and installation of small-wind and mid-wind applications.
“With power generation being the reason for nearly 40% of carbon emissions in the US, we believe that it is imperative for all participants in the power supply chain to do its utmost to generate and distribute power in an environmentally sustainable and responsible manner” – Brian Sims, President of the NOW Corporation.

(OTC Bulletin Board: VSPC), and its renewable energy subsidiary VIASPACE Green Energy Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: VGREF), announced today that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with PT Provident Agro of Jakarta Indonesia with the goal to use Giant King(TM) Grass as feedstock for a large scale pellet mill to manufacture a minimum of 300,000 metric tonnes per year of pellets for the export market, primarily in Europe.
Provident Agro owns extensive oil palm plantations and land in Sumatra, Kalimantan and Sulawesi, Indonesia with a total land bank of 150,000 hectares (370,000 acres) producing more than 23,500 tons of crude palm oil each year. Provident Agro is owned 50% by the Saratoga Group and 50% by Provident Capital Indonesia. The Saratoga group, headed by Edwin Soeryadjaya, Ernst & Young’s Indonesian Entrepreneur of the Year in 2010, has extensive holdings in energy and natural resources including coal and palm plantations. Saratoga and Provident Capital Indonesia also own a network of cell phone towers in Indonesia.
Under the Memorandum of Understanding, Provident Agro will initially plant a 25 acre test plot in Indonesia using Giant King Grass seedlings provided under contract by VIASPACE. Details of the business relationship were not provided. Provident Agro has signed a Nondisclosure and Non-Circumvention Agreement with VIASPACE, and has visited the Giant King Grass plantation in China as part of its due diligence.
Giant King Grass is a very high yield, nonfood, low carbon energy crop that can be burned in electric power plants to replace coal. The carbon dioxide released when Giant King Grass is burned is reabsorbed by the next crop growing 120 days later. With only minor modifications, many existing power plants can burn up to 25% Giant King Grass pellets instead of coal, thus reducing their carbon emissions by 25% and meeting their emissions targets for the next 10 to 20 years while preserving their large capital investment. New power plants can burn up to 100% Giant King Grass.
Bloomberg reported on December 3, 2010, “The highest-priced coal in two years is making wood pellets a viable fuel alternative for U.K. power producers, heralding a doubling of electricity generation from biomass in the next three years…Benchmark coal for delivery next month in Northwest Europe has climbed 40 percent this year to close at $116.25 a metric ton yesterday, thehighestsince Oct. 24, 2008, according to data compiled by Bloomberg from broker prices. Pellets have fallen 0.7 percent this year to 126.30 euros ($167) a ton, according to APX-Endex, an Amsterdam-based exchange thatplansto begin trading of wood contracts on its system by mid-2011…Power companies are turning to biomass as the profit from coal-based electricity generation slides.”

Giant King Grass is a dedicated and sustainably grown energy crop that provides an attractive alternative to wood pellets which are being criticized for diverting wood waste from current applications in the pulp & paper, plywood, veneer and engineered wood products industries
