Western Wind Energy Corp. (the "Company" or "Western Wind") remembers that 14
years ago, we had a shared dream of building a company that would develop, own
and operate wind and solar projects. The key to our success would be to engage
the best individuals and move decisely for the right reasons. The road would
not be smooth but we never wavered from our vision. We succeded in creating,
buying, building, owning and operating 165 megawatts of green energy
generation with many more megawatts in development.

With the humble beginnings of just a few hundred thousand dollars, we expanded
to providing clean energy to over 48,000 homes.This was the work of
intellectual capital.Assessing areas and regions with abundant sunshine and
wind, we provided to society, energy, jobs, taxes and benefits, to something
that previously had no value.

There were many people who helped us navigate the challenging business
environment of carving out a niche, as a well respected player in the energy
generation business.This was the domain of giants and as a small upstart, and
with an unyielding desire and vision, we did what was right for both the
environment and our shareholders. We are humbled by the outcome of having our
shareholders exit with, in most cases, a sizable return on their investment.
We grew our share price on average, 20% each and every year since 2000 and our
assets, by 60%, each and every year, over the same period.

Jeff Ciachurski, CEO of Western Wind Energy Corp., states: "Western Wind has
been sold and I can now concentrate our efforts on building the next flagship
company, Greenbriar Capital Corp. (stock symbol "GRB", on the Toronto Venture
Exchange.) I have fourteen years of excellent banking, energy, business and
engineering relationships that will be mobilized for Greenbriar."
