Value story:

Current valuation: about $141mil. = about $1.6 per share

Next milestone: to bring the first two 20MW Frequency Regulation Plants

online by Q408/Q109

Basic Business Model:

- Cost to build 20MW plant: $30mil.

- Annual Earnings per 20 MW plant: $8mil.

- Expected 10-year value (PE=10) per plant: $50mil

- Expected number of plants to be built thru 2010: 8-12

- Expected company value in 2 years PE=10: between $400mil. and $600mil. ($5.6 per share - $8.40 per share)

Additional upsides:

- Market might be growing faster than expected, opening of Canadian- and

South American Markets

- Increased production capacity may increase the number of plants that can

be built per year

- Possible licensing or technology sales to Europe and Asia

- Rising energy prices will drive up the cost of conventional frequency

regulation services increasing operational margins

- Depending on growth rate and size of opportunity valuation multiple could

be larger

- Additional efficiencies of scale will lead to lower costs per plant,

possibly increasing 10-year plant value to $60mil.

Downside risks:

- Possibly ongoing patent issues, maybe settlement needed

- Possible performance, operational problems at the first plant

- Entry of new competitors, or different technology

- Possible overall reduction of market potential because the faster response

provided by the new tech. may reduce the amount of frequency regulation

services actually needed

- Question how additional capital will be raised = possible dilution
