AIR WIND TURBINE FIVE YEAR (5-YEAR) LIMITED WARRANTY

Length of Limited Warranty and What is Covered

Primus Wind Power Inc. (“Primus Wind Power”) warrants to the original end-user purchaser (the “Customer”) of the AIR Wind Turbine (the “Wind Turbine”) that the Wind Turbine will be free from defects in factory supplied materials and factory workmanship for a period of five (5) years from the earliest to occur of the following dates: (i) date of the completed installation of the Wind Turbine if installed by an authorized Wind Power installer, or (ii) ninety (90) days after the date the Customer purchases the Wind Turbine (the “Warranty Period”).

Purchase of the Wind Turbine constitutes acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Limited Warranty. This Limited Warranty extends only to the Customer and may not be transferred if the Wind Turbine is sold.

The Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy and the entire liability of Primus Wind Power, its dealers, suppliers and affiliates under this Limited Warranty is, at Primus Wind Power’s sole option, either (i) to repair free of charge the defective part or Wind Turbine, or (ii) exchange free of charge the defective part or Wind Turbine with a new or remanufactured part or Wind Turbine that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability and is at least functionally equivalent to the original part or Wind Turbine. Should the product prove to be irreparable, Primus Wind Power reserves the right to substitute an equivalent product if available. Repaired, exchanged, or substituted Wind Turbine parts or products pursuant to this Limited Warranty will be warranted for the remainder of the Warranty Period subject to the restrictions, limitations, and exclusions of this Limited Warranty.

Restrictions on Limited Warranty

This Limited Warranty applies to the Wind Turbine only if the Customer follows the installation, maintenance, and operation procedures outlined in the Wind Turbine’s Owner’s Manual. If Primus Wind Power determines that the claimed problem with the Wind Turbine is not due to a defect in Primus Wind Power’s workmanship or materials, then the party requesting the warranty service shall be responsible for the costs of all necessary repairs performed and expenses incurred by Primus Wind Power.

How to Register The Wind Turbine and Warranty Procedures

Primus Wind Power strongly recommends registration of the Wind Turbine with the warranty registration materials provided with the product. The Customer is encouraged to return the warranty registration document included with this Limited Warranty within sixty (60) days of the start of the Warranty Period. A Customer may also visit http://primuswindpower.com/maintenance- service/warranty1/ to register the Wind Turbine online. While submission of the warranty registration document does not reduce a Customer’s eligibility to receive warranty service, the Customer will be required to provide proof of ownership and original purchase (including a copy of the original receipt) and date of purchase or installation satisfactory to Primus Wind Power prior to receiving warranty services.

All Customer warranty claims must be received by Primus Wind Power during the Warranty Period. For any problems with a Wind Turbine, please contact an Authorized Service Dealer (“ASD”) or Primus Wind Power directly. To find a Primus Wind Power ASD close by or to report a claim to technical support, call Primus Wind Power at (303) 242-5820 Monday-Friday 8:00AM – 5:00 PM Mountain Standard Time. The ASD may be able to provide a possible solution and can also start the warranty claims process.

A warranty claim notification must include a description of the defect, the serial number of the Wind Turbine at issue, the original purchase date, and the name, address, and telephone number of the Customer requesting warranty service under this Limited Warranty. All claims for defect shall be deemed waived unless made in writing and delivered to Primus Wind Power during the Warranty Period and not later than thirty (30) days after discovery of the defect. Please retain all information and documents until the warranty issues are resolved.

After Primus Wind Power is notified, Primus Wind Power representatives will make all reasonable efforts via phone and email to ascertain the nature of the problem to determine whether any part or the Wind Turbine is defective for purposes of coverage under this Limited Warranty. Other than normal communication carrier charges, there is no charge for such diagnosis. Any repair or replacement will be provided only after Primus Wind Power’s diagnosis and its agreement regarding the defective condition. Certain diagnostic checks may be required to be performed by the Customer or designee at Primus Wind Power’s representatives’ request.

If Primus Wind Power representatives determine that the Wind Turbine requires service and that Customer’s service request constitutes a valid claim under this Limited Warranty, Primus Wind Power will provide warranty service, at Primus Wind Power’s sole option, either (i) through an ASD, with service to be performed at the servicer’s location; (ii) by sending replacement Wind Turbine or parts to the Customer or (iii) by providing the Customer with a Return Merchandise Authorization (“RMA”) number to authorize the Customer to ship the defective Wind Turbine or Wind Turbine parts to Primus Wind Power for service.

Any Wind Turbine/part(s) requiring warranty repair shall be transported to Primus Wind Power at the Customer’s expense and risk, including but not limited to proper packaging of the Wind Turbine/part(s). Primus Wind Power will return to sender any Wind Turbine and/or part(s) that do not have a valid RMA number. Primus Wind Power will use all reasonable efforts to repair/replace the defective Wind Turbine and/or part(s). Repaired or replaced Wind Turbines and replacement parts will be delivered to the Customer at Primus Wind Power’s expense.

If a warranty claim is invalid for any reason, the Customer may be charged at Primus Wind Power’s and/or the ASD’s then current rate for repair services performed. In such event, the Customer will be informed of the repair charges for prior approval, and, upon approval, will be charged for the approved repairs and return freight. If the Customer refuses to approve repair charges, return freight charges may apply. When a Wind Turbine part is replaced for a new or remanufactured part, such new or remanufactured part becomes Customer’s property and the replaced part becomes Primus Wind Power’s property. Customer property remaining at Primus Wind Power’s repair facilities for more than ninety (90) days without required Customer approval of return freight charges, becomes the property of Primus Wind Power.
