2010 Executive Summary
General; Recent Developments
Hydro Alternative Energy, Inc. (“HAE”) was founded in March 2009, as a renewable energy company. HAE seeks to generate
mechanical and electrical power in a cost-effective manner, causing minimal or no ecological impact. HAE is a debt free company
except for ordinary business trade payables.
HAE has been approved for pilot projects in Ecuador, Dominican Republic and Cameroon and more specifically we have met and
are in the process of receiving the respective licenses in each aforementioned country and are concurrently negotiating the power
purchase agreements and initial target sites within each country. In Ecuador the initial targeted site is the Galapagos Islands and
their initial power needs are approximately 30 megawatts, while the total deficit of power within the country of Ecuador is 1.2 giga-
watts. They are offering up to 500 megawatts in power purchase agreements but we must complete the initial pilot project in the
Galapagos Islands first. Under the initial understanding but prior to the power purchase agreement being signed for the
Galapagos Islands the basic terms would stand as up to 30 megawatts whether under one or multiple contracts and the price per
kilowatt to be paid to HAE is between ten ($0.10) and twelve ($0.12) cents calculated in US dollars. The Dominican Republic is
faced with a shortage of 500 megawatts of power and the country is currently under mass development concentrating on their
infrastructure, they are adding metro rails, highways, redoing their roads and there is major private investment entering into the
country through business development such as new marinas, hotel resorts and such. The Dominican government has approved
us for the license to sell electricity within their country and we have just began the process of finding the initial pilot project in the
country and just began the negotiations of setting up the power purchase agreements. The project in Cameroon was just
approved on May 1 , 2010 and we are looking forward to the initial steps of identifying their needs and negotiating the power
On April 2010 HAE appointed Luis Eduardo Bernal Jaller, Enrique Pallares, Luciano Jose Garcia-Baylleres and Juan Mesa Uribe to
the board of directors of the company.
On February 15, 2010, HAE announced that it recently and successfully conducted initial in-water, off-shore testing of its patent
pending turbine prototype designed for use in certain planned commercialized tidal water power applications.
The test involved the turbine prototype being positioned in the Intracoastal waterway by a Company chartered vessel and
successfully demonstrating the production of electrical current through simple, effective testing methods.
HAE believes that the basic design of the technology set forth in the U.S. and international patent pending applications will allow
the Company to save approximately 2 to 3 years of research and development, particularly in view of such successful prototype
testing, and our engineering team members’ intimate working knowledge of the technology comprising the prototype device.
Our engineering team, comprised of WPT engineers who are emerging technology developers, coupled with our advisory board,
who are utility industry veterans with experience in constructing and operating electricity generation facilities, especially
hydropower, provide the Company with a good range and substantial depth of knowledge and talent.
This is an animated

2010 Executive Summary
HAE incorporated HAE Latin America, Inc., (“HAELA”) on November 17th, 2009 as a wholly-owned subsidiary for the purpose of
entering into an exclusive distributor / reseller agreement for the Latin American region. It is widely known that the Latin American
region is in need of creating more energy. It is currently experiencing mandatory and consistent brown outs of power because its
power infrastructure is not sufficient to meet current power demands. Initially we teamed with the Latin Power Group, Inc. (“LPG”), a
Florida corporation, by awarding LPG an exclusive distributor/reseller agreement in the Latin American region but on March 31st, 2010
both HAE and LPG mutually agreed to terminate the exclusive distributor/reseller agreement entered into on November 17 , 2010.
Both HAE and LPG felt it was in the best interest to join forces within HAE.
HAE acquired Water Power Technologies, LLC (“WPT”), a Florida limited liability corporation in a transaction completed on November
20th, 2009. Pursuant to this transaction, we issued an aggregate of 3,000,000 shares of our common stock to the unit holders of WPT
in exchange for all of their WPT units. This acquisition was the first step in our plan of either utilizing or acquiring the necessary
technology to fulfill our current resource and technology needs. This acquisition provided us an exclusive license relating to certain
patent pending turbine technology necessary for fulfilling our need of producing consistent power from slow water/current speeds/flow.
Such patent pending application relates to a unique method of converting water flow into energy. In our industry, the standard method
for harnessing the energy of moving water utilizes an airfoil “propeller” type device. Even though this method is constant and widely
used, the biggest problem is that the propeller type power produced is highly linked to a target flow rate. This means that at a
specific speed or water flow, the turbine will produce a specific amount of power, but if the water goes faster or slower than the
necessary speed, the efficiency of the device drops considerably. With our Perpendicular Axis Turbine (“PAT”), the power
generated is directly correlated with the speed of the water so the faster the water flows, the more power is generated.
On December 28 , 2009, HAE acquired from Harry Robinson, the inventor of the PAT, all U.S. and international patents and
technology rights relating to the PAT, pursuant to patent and assignment of technology and know how agreements for a cash
payment of $5,000 and the assumption of a payable to Mr Robinsons legal counsel, not to exceed $19,943.31. These agreements
constitute a complete transfer of ownership of all rights, title and interest in and to any intellectual property, technology, know how,
trade secrets and tooling associated and all letters patent to be obtained thereon in the U.S. and PCT patent pending applications
and any and all continuations, divisionals, renewals, or substitutes thereof, and to any and all letters patent and any reissue or re-
Our mission statement is to deploy new technological and environmental solutions, throughout the world, to help solve the need for
clean, carbon free electricity generation for the 21st century.
Our objectives are to commercialize a new technology platform to generate and then sell the electricity produced. The energy will
be harnessed from tidal and oceanic currents, a predictable and consistent power source. The new platform combines new and
existing technologies and is planned to produce reliable, low cost electricity from the earth’s natural tidal systems for the 21st
century. The cost of the electricity generated by our planned hydrokinetic power generation system is expected to be competitive
with conventional forms of power generation but no assurances can be given to such effect.
HAE objectives are ambitious; yet we believe they are achievable depending upon the amount of proceeds we may receive from
this Offering and are subject to all of the risks, including unanticipated development and installation issues and possible cost
overruns associated with the implementation of complex new technology. HAE has started the process of testing and
implementation of its planned hydrokinetic power generation system. We intend to utilize the proceeds of this Offering, assuming
our receipt of all or substantially all of the Maximum Proceeds, to, among other things, establish at least one working location to
prove the validity of utilizing tidal and/or current flow to produce electrical power output on a commercial basis, to continue to
develop strategic alliances with the necessary personnel to cause implementation to go as smooth as possible (these people
would assist us in obtaining such things as new locations, permits, and lobbyists) and to possibly make certain value added
acquisitions and for working capital and general corporate purposes. In the event of our receipt of approximately the median
proceeds sought herein, we plan to concentrate our efforts on establishing one working location to prove the validity of utilizing
tidal and/or current flow to produce electrical power output on a commercial basis. We would otherwise not seek additional
acquisitions, nor do any extensive marketing or advertising and keep our operating budget as low as possible with the intent to still
complete at lease one operable unit to demonstrate proof of the concept. See ‘Use of Proceeds.’
As a result of our initial meetings with potential customers and their planned locations, we believe that we will be able to secure
sufficient contracts and produce tidal and/or current turbine farms to produce sufficient electrical output to meet the contractual
obligations. However, there is no assurance given that even if we are able to raise the additional proceeds that we would have
sufficient capital to build such tidal and/or current farms needed. If are we able to secure such financing from this Offering and third
parties with whom we may contract to build the tidal and/or current farms, we could then only estimate the time frame for any

installation and our estimates may prove to be wrong from an installation and project completion cost standpoint because we plan
on building structures that have never before been built in waters at depths on average of over 200 feet.
Proprietary “PAT” Technology, Patent Application Pending
The PAT technology we have acquired is based on a unique turbine design which differs from a propeller/rotor design in that the
power generation is linear relative to the flow rate of the water.
Turbine Efficiency (% )
1 “Airfoil” Type Turbine
Water Speed (m/s)
PAT offers what we believe to be “best in class” environmental impact since it is not a propeller turbine design and is fully scalable.
PAT minimizes environmental impact in two ways: PAT rotates at a much slower speed, turning at the speed of the water it is in,
which will allow wildlife to more easily skirt around or through PAT, thus not being harmed. PAT can be installed vertically or
horizontally and so will work in multiple settings, not only being safe for the inhabitants, but also for the actual environment.
PAT also offers what we believe to be “best in class” operational cost, as estimated and calculated by our contracted engineering
firm. The next most cost effective “Green” system is wind turbines which are reportedly able to produce electricity at between
$0.07 to $0.18 per kWh with only a maximum 35% efficiency, based on a maximum 39% daily wind capacity in highest wind zones.
PAT additionally offers a very high level of competitiveness against oil/coal/natural gas fired turbines because PAT is relatively
inexpensive in comparison when you take into consideration that PAT’s maintenance levels are planned to be much less and the
overall technology of PAT is basic when in comparison to other power generation devices. If we look at natural gas or clean
burning coal plants we will see that these plants are very expensive and high in maintenance. As example the work to prepare the
Keephills 3 site, in Alberta Canada, for construction began in February 2007. The project is approximately 35% complete.
Construction is expected to take four years with commissioning scheduled for Q1 2011. The capital cost of the project, including
mine capital is expected to be approximately $1.6 billion and anticipated to result in a peak workforce of up to 1000 people in 2009.
The approximate installed cost per is $3.6 million per installed mega watt.
2010 Executive Summary
PAT vs Conventional Turbine Pow er Output
Conventional/A irf oil
Wate r V e locity
PAT may offer one of the lowest costs per kWh of any known Green Energy platform, including but not limited to water or wind
turbines, PV and Concentrated solar and could be competitive with the cost of fossil fuel power generation.
Unlike wind, water currents run continuously 24/7, 365 days a year, allowing “base load” (ie continuous minimal output) electrical
generation, the most desired of the spectrum. With available tax incentives, a cap and trade system (a cap and trade system is a
method for managing pollution whereby companies that need to pollute buy that right from companies that can pollute less, with
the end goal of reducing the overall pollution in a nation, region, or industry) and benefits being offered to green energy producers
around the world, our system offers the potential to become an extremely profitable venture.
Unlike wind, most water-turbine installation sites are often near major population centers. When you combine this fact with the
recent advancements in advanced DC cable technology that has drastically reduced transmission loss at up to 500km, the market
for hydro kinetic energy sources gets even larger. This substantially increases the potential sites for our system to deliver electricity
to an even greater number of heavily populated areas.
With the use of PAT, we can “tap into” the ocean’s “conveyor belt”. This “conveyor belt” is a group of oceanic currents called the
Thermohaline. Any of these Thermohaline currents would be prime locations for the installation of our turbine farms. These
currents are strong and consistent. Driven by the sun's heat, which is absorbed by the tropical oceans and impacted by variations
in salt content in the water, the Thermohaline Circulation or THC is a powerful force on the world's climate system. As heat from
the tropics is carried by the Gulf Stream into the North Atlantic where it is vented into the atmosphere, a deep convection of ocean
waters is caused by surface cooling, with the flow of water then sinking to depths and then upwelling back to the surface at lower
latitudes. When frozen, water releases salt, and thus when it melts it is salt-free. This factor and the heavier density of salty water
is particularly important in polar regions where the convergence of fresh and saline waters influences ocean currents. One of the
most famous of these current is the Gulf Stream off of the Eastern Seaboard of the United States.
According to OCS (outer continental shelf) Alternative Energy and Alternate Use Programmatic EIS (environmental impact study),
published by the U.S. Department of the Interior’s U.S. Minerals Management Service (MMS) website, there are no known
commercial water turbine installations anywhere in the world thus offering a virgin market.
2010 Executive Summary
Oceans and Terrestrial Biomes Map Sources: Goddard Flight Center SeaWIFS data, www.gsfc.nasa.gov/topstory/20020801plankton.html; Gaia, and atlas of planet
The worldwide installed wind turbine market is estimated at 101,896 MW (Wind Power Monthly, July 2008), costing $1,750,000 per
installed mega watt. However, current financial conditions have drastically curtailed current and future production. All large scale
farms are either partially or fully subsidized by various governments. As an example, the work to prepare the Keephills 3 site, in
Alberta, Canada, for construction began in February 2007. The project is approximately 35 per cent complete. Construction is
expected to take four years with commissioning scheduled for Q1 2011. The capital cost of the project, including mining capital, is
expected to be approximately $1.6 billion and anticipated to result in a peak workforce of up to 1,000 people in 2009, the actual
figures have not yet been published. The approximate installed cost is $3.6 million per installed mega watt.
PAT can be ready for market within a short timeframe because all of the engineering and manufacturing aspects of its design are
already utilized in various other products. For instance, it could be easily manufactured without expensive tooling by many of the
higher quality shipyards already existing around the world. PAT has been estimated by our contracted engineering firm to have an
approximate construction cost of about $1.2 to $1.4 million per Mega Watt.
Accurate cost-performance data and projections for ocean energy technologies will be possible only after additional field-testing
has been done. Based on current knowledge, it appears that tidal current systems and onshore and inshore wave energy systems
may become cost-competitive in niche markets, such as in remote power or dual-use applications, within the next several years.
For broader use, the engineering challenges associated with constructing, operating, and maintaining energy systems in marine
environments will need to be addressed. Such challenges include corrosion and fouling problems, access limitations, and storm
potential. For systems installed in deepwater environments, significant technology gaps must be overcome in the areas of siting,
underwater cabling, grid connection, and energy storage.
Consistency and Predictability
A predictable and self renewing energy source, the currents that are created by the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun, the
Coriolis effect, (because the earth rotates on its axis, circulating air is deflected toward the right in the northern hemisphere and
toward the left in the southern hemisphere, this deflection is called the Coriolis effect), and the heat transfer properties of the
oceans. Our planned solution is consistent, predictable, invisible and economically cost effective, by utilizing tidal and waterway
currents that exist in the open ocean we are taping into a source of consistent and endlessly repeating cycles which offers the
potential of higher significant levels of power generation than other renewable energy sources including wave, wind and solar.
2010 Executive Summary
To be positioned on the sea floor and out of the general line of sight, HAE’s planned power generation units are unobtrusive,
environmentally friendly and invisible to the naked eye, since we cannot see what is on the floor of the ocean. Using our unique
technology, we address the understandable concerns that these turbines are practical and also relate to the aesthetics and the
living, organic environment in which they are likely to be placed and remain very friendly to the surrounding environment.
The hydrokinetic energy and renewable energy industries are both highly competitive and continually evolving as participants strive
to distinguish themselves within their markets and compete within the larger electric power industry. Within the renewable energy
industry, we will compete with other renewable energy technologies including different types of hydro (such as but not limited to
dams and tidal barrages), wind, geothermal and bio-mass.
Within the hydrokinetic energy industry, we believe that our main sources of competition are the few ocean current and tidal
companies that are actually commercially operational as well as the old hydro dams and tidal barrage systems. We are only aware
of a few hydrokinetic energy companies which are actually producing energy on a commercial level, such as but not limited to:
Marine Current Turbines, Limited, which is a company registered in England and Wales, which has successfully deployed their
technology in Northern Ireland's Strangford Lough; Verdant Power, with headquarters based in NYC, NY and offices in Seattle,
Washington and Ontario Canada, which has successfully deployed test units in New York’s east river; and Hydro Green Energy,
LLC, a Texas-based company whose first project in Hastings, Minnesota is the first Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
(FERC) licensed and commercially operational hydrokinetic power station in the U.S.

Although the determinations of these factors are subjective in nature, the electrical power industry is influenced by social, financial and political means and therefore
these factors will continue to play a very important roll in the future of electrical power. This analysis was internally prepared by HAE and much of the information used
for this research and comparison of existing energy providers and was obtained from a myriad of sources for analysis of this project. This is an illustration only. This
illustration is not intended to predict actual or average cost and/or performance.
The principal factors which serve as competitive elements among participants both in the hydrokinetic energy industry and in the
larger electric power industry are price per watt, production capacity, conversion efficiency and reliability. Many of our competitors
are larger and have greater financial resources, larger production capacities and greater brand name recognition than we do and

2010 Executive Summary
may, as a result, be better positioned to secure financing, to construct and build electric power generation units, and to adapt to
changes in the industry or the economy as a whole.
Our hydrokinetic power products and services will also compete against other power generation sources supplied by utilities that
burn conventional fossil fuels. As we develop our hydrokinetic power systems and begin to offer hydro electricity solutions to
utilities, we expect to face competition from other providers of renewable energy solutions, including developers of photovoltaic,
solar thermal and concentrated solar power systems and from developers of alternate forms of renewable energy projects.
Applicability & Operations
Ocean energy resources are widely available, creating the potential for marine technologies to contribute to the state, national, and
global electricity supply portfolios. However, siting constraints exist. Many sites with excellent resources are in locations that are
highly visible or widely used for commercial or recreational purposes. High-energy offshore regions and other promising sites can
be far from load centers (where the electricity is needed most ie cities).
In serving loads (a distinct or large demand for electrical power), some ocean energy technologies offer distinct cost and reliability
advantages. They supply power continuously, rather than intermittently like solar and wind generation. Examples include
nearshore and offshore wave and Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Systems (OTEC), as well as tidal current installations in
areas where units are always submerged.
Developing ocean energy resources will reduce dependence on fossil fuels-including oil, coal, and natural gas-that must be
imported to many locales, including Florida. It also will decrease U.S. reliance on foreign sources of fuel. Ocean energy is also not
subject to fuel cost increases, positioning it as a potential hedge against price volatility.
Air & Water Emissions
Ocean energy technologies produce no emissions of harmful pollutants or greenhouse gases.
Habitat & Wildlife
The experience base with tidal, wave, and ocean thermal energy systems is extremely limited. As a result, overall effects on
habitats and wildlife are not well understood. Two things are clear: These technologies will not emit any of the pollutants that can
be extremely harmful to wildlife populations, and they will not contribute to climate change, which is already altering habitats
Extensive field research and careful siting practices will be required to understand and mitigate any adverse impacts on ecological
communities. Given current knowledge, the following generalizations are possible:
Tidal/ocean current technologies, like in-stream hydro systems, are engineered to generate power without irrevocably
altering natural water flows and habitats. Foundations and moorings may have localized effects on habitat-both positive
and negative. Wildlife colliding with spinning turbines or other structures may be injured or killed.
Tidal barrages are analogous to conventional hydro technologies. They can destroy or impair habitats, prevent or restrict
the natural movement and migration of aquatic species, and injure or kill wildlife. Ladders, screens, and other fish
passage and protection measures can be employed to lessen-but not eliminate-these adverse impacts.
Wave energy technologies are being developed for shoreline, nearshore, and offshore environments, with systems
ranging from the community to the utility scale. As a result, possible effects on habitat and wildlife could vary widely.
Shoreline installations, for example, could completely transform habitat in localized areas, while other types of projects
might create large-scale, reef-type environments with net benefits for wildlife.
Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Systems transport large amounts of deep ocean water to the surface. This raises the
potential for wildlife to be drawn into intake pipes. Discharge points could create localized changes in water temperature
Energy Demand - The Case for Sustainability - U.S. Legislative Initiatives
Current thinking suggests that total energy demand is likely to grow over the next 20 years. Global living standards will improve
but to do this more and more energy will have to be made available. The political case for renewable/sustainable energy is already
2010 Executive Summary
making itself felt. Politicians are beginning to recognize that in order to address increased energy demand and the need to tackle
the problem of climate change, they will have to get behind the drive for sustainable sources of energy. Added to this, but no less
important, is the harsh truth that traditional sources of oil and gas no longer offer security of supply, with the bulk of supplies
emanating from the Middle East and Russia. The U.S. government is providing robust and continued support to the renewable
energy sector as demonstrated in The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The following types of incentives are covered in the bill:
Renewable Energy Incentives
These incentives include tax credits for production and facilities using wind, refined coal, geothermal, biomass, solar, and
combined heat and power systems. In addition, $800 million of Clean Renewable Energy Bonds (CREBs) have been authorized to
finance renewable facilities.
Transportation & Domestic Fuel Security
These incentives provide tax credits for alternative fueling stations, cellulosic biofuel facilities, and for alternative fuel production,
including biofuels, biomass gas versions of liquefied petroleum gas, liquefied or compressed natural gas, and aviation fuels. Idle
reduction units and advanced insulation for heavy vehicles are also provided a tax exemption.
Energy Conservation and Efficiency
These incentives provide financing and incentives for state and local governments to reduce greenhouse emissions, for builders
and developers to build efficient buildings or to improve existing buildings, and for manufacturers to produce efficient appliances. In
addition, these incentives allow for swifter recovery of the cost of smart electric meters and grid equipment.
Sales & Marketing Strategy
Initially, we plan to deploy our turbines to specific targeted locations such as the Caribbean, Latin America and parts of West Africa
based on the initial meetings and conversations with the governments of Ecuador, Dominican Republic and Cameroon with whom
we may enter into contracts with. In this manner, we will be able to introduce and test turbine production on various levels of
efficiency and utilization. These areas have been chosen very carefully and for several reasons, such as but not limited to, their
need for power each of the initial sites and their related countries have not only a need for additional power but a substantial power
deficit and with this in mind these countries are more willing to assist us in completing the projects and walking us through their
licensing and regulatory systems. We also have a very strong and highly experienced group of advisors and members of our
Board of Directors when it comes to our initial target markets.
The main sales and distribution method we plan to utilize in most situations is entering into Power Purchase Agreements (PPA)
with prospective and targeted countries, regions and/or corporate clients. In this way we would be selling the electricity itself while
maintaining ownership of the devices ourselves. Where this is not possible we are willing to sell the devices themselves and let the
buyers own the devices. This creates two different sales models that will allow us into markets with varying parameters.
We have and intend to grant marketing and distribution rights to companies in the major world markets: Latin America, Asia,
Europe, South America and North America, etc.
In conjunction with our sales and marketing strategy we plan to contract manufacturing companies and component distribution
facilities at strategic locations around the world depending on where our distributors/resellers may be located.
We plan to operate all worldwide marketing and distribution from one primary location that is geographically suited to assist our
distributors and/or resellers.

Overview of the OTC Bulletin Board. The OTC Bulletin Board® (OTCBB) is a regulated quotation service that displays real-time
quotes, last-sale prices, and volume information in over-the-counter (OTC) securities. An OTC equity security generally is any
equity that is not listed or traded on NASDAQ® or a national securities exchange. OTCBB securities include national, regional, and
foreign equity issues, warrants, units, American Depositary Receipts (ADRs), and Direct Participation Programs (DPPs).
Listing Requirements. The OTCBB is not an issuer listing service, market or exchange. Although the OTCBB does not have any
listing requirements per se, to be eligible for quotation on the OTCBB, issuers must remain current in their filings with the SEC or
applicable regulatory authority. Market Makers are not permitted to begin quotation of a security whose issuer does not meet this
filing requirement. Securities already quoted on the OTCBB that become delinquent in their required filings will be removed
following a 30 or 60 day grace period if they do not make their required filing during that time. A fifth character of "E" in a security's
trading symbol is used to denote securities that FINRA believes are delinquent in their required filings; securities so denoted will be
removed from the OTCBB after the applicable grace period expires. An issuer can request review of the decision to remove the
issuer’s securities by an independent hearings panel.
