ANNAPOLIS, Md., March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc.
(OTCQB: SWET), (the "Company") announced today that Solar Wind Energy is
collaborating with Providence Energy Corporation, a privately-owned company
from Dallas, Texas, on the development of the first Solar Wind Energy
Downdraft Tower located in San Luis, Arizona on the US/Mexico border. The
Solar Wind Energy Downdraft Tower will provide clean renewable energy at a
cost more favorable than nuclear plants with no negative impacts to our

Providence Energy is a nationally recognized leader in clean and
environmentally friendly development of domestic oil and gas resources and has
been investing in the generation of diversified sources of alternative energy
for several years. Providence currently owns and manages over 4 million net
mineral acres in 34 states with royalty and working interests in over 20,000
producing wells. Providence is primarily focused on unconventional oil and gas
formations and has a strong presence in nearly all major basins across the
country, but has invested substantially renewables over the past decade. The
company has both invested in the R&D of innovative green technologies and also
been actively developing renewable generation projects across the Americas.

Ronald W. Pickett, CEO, stated, "We have been in discussions with Providence
Energy for several months about the development of our first Downdraft Energy
Tower project in Arizona. Providence Energy and their various subsidiaries
have extensive experience and expertise in partnerships with energy
exploration, production, generation companies, as well as renewables across
the Americas. Providence Energy has taken a position in Solar Wind Energy
Tower, Inc., and we welcome their expert development assistance in making our
first Tower Project a reality."

About Solar Wind Energy, Inc.
Solar Wind Energy, Inc. (Solar Wind Energy), a wholly owned subsidiary of
Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc., was established to commercialize a number of
proven, validated technologies and construction systems into a single large
Solar Wind Downdraft Tower structure that produces abundant, inexpensive
electricity. Our Company's core objective and focus is to become a leading
provider of clean, efficient green energy to the world communities, at a
reasonable cost, without the destructive residuals of fossil fuels, while
continuing to generate innovative technological solutions for tomorrow's
electrical power needs.

Innovative Renewable Hybrid Solar / Wind Energy Technology
We view ourselves as a hybrid solar/wind technology, reflected in the name,
Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc. The simplicity of our solution is comprised of
harnessing the natural power of a downdraft created within the confines of our
Solar Wind Downdraft Tower structure, a hollow cylinder reaching skyward into
the hot, dry atmosphere heated by the solar rays of the sun. The water
introduced by the injection system near the top of the Tower evaporates and is
absorbed by the hot, dry air. The air becomes cooler, denser and heavier than
the outside warmer air and falls through the cylinder at speeds up to and in
excess of 50 mph and is diverted into wind tunnels surrounding the base of the
Tower where turbines inside the tunnels power generators to produce

Downdraft Tower Will Produce Abundant, Inexpensive electricity
The Company has successfully managed to downsize and economize the Tower,
reducing expected capital costs and improving projected financial performance.
The Company recently announced the completion of weather data models that
confirm the first tower height can be lowered from 3,000 feet down to 2,250
feet. This development was made possible by utilizing our recently announced
software which can calculate and predict energy production by our Solar Wind
Downdraft Towers given local weather data. By feeding the weather data for
southwestern Arizona/ Northern Mexico into the program, the Tower's height and
diameter can be adjusted along with the amount of water added as fuel to
create a desired amount of energy. The outcome dictates the optimum size of
the Towers height and width.

Under the most recent design specifications, the first San Luis Tower is
expected to have a design capacity on an hourly basis, of up to 1,250 megawatt
hours, gross. Using a 60% capacity factor, we expect the Tower's potential
hourly yield equates to 600 megawatt hours, from which approximately 18.5%
will be used to power its operations, yielding approximately 500 megawatt
hours available for sale to the power grid. Factoring in lower capacities
during winter days, the average daily output for sale to the grid for the
entire year is approximately 435 megawatt hours per day. Currently in
California avoided costs are running approximately $0.11 per kilowatt hour.
As an independent power producer of clean renewable energy, the Company will
be selling power directly to the power grid rather than directly to consumers.

In addition to constructing Solar Wind Downdraft Towers in the United States
and abroad, the Company intends to establish partnerships at home and abroad
to propagate these systems and meet increasing global demand for electricity.
Solar Wind Energy has assembled a team of experienced business professionals,
engineering and scientific consultants with the proven ability to bring the
idea to market. Solar Wind Energy has filed and been issued patents that the
Company believes will further enhance this potentially revolutionary
technology. Solar Wind Energy, Inc. is based in Annapolis, MD, and is traded
on the OTCQB under the symbol 'SWET'. For more information visit
