(www.powerclouds.com) (Other OTC: PWCL) announces today that it has completed the spinout of its technology business, Wor(l)d Media and Technology Corp. (OTC: WRMT). On September 30, 2015, the Securities and Exchange Commission declared WRMT's Registration Statement effective, and FINRA has approved the distribution of the WRMT share dividend.

Power Clouds Inc. will now focus exclusively on its core business of developing, acquiring and operating Utility Scale Solar plants around the world. The Company currently has 6MW of output operational in Romania with an additional 2MW under construction in Japan. It is also developing additional plants in other countries. According to a June 2015 report by trade body Solar Power Europe, a record amount of solar power was added to the world's grids in 2014, pushing total cumulative capacity to 100 times the level it was in 2000. Approximately 40GW of solar power was installed last year. This has caused many renewable energy associations to claim that a tipping point has been reached that will now allow rapid acceleration of the technology. The same report state that for the first time ever in Europe, renewables produced more power than nuclear – and solar power was key in achieving this remarkable achievement.
Roberto Forlani, President and Chief Executive Officer of PWCL, said, "We are very pleased to have completed the spinout of WRMT, which gives our loyal shareholders the opportunity to share in both companies going forward, each with their own exciting futures. Power Clouds will now focus exclusively on renewable energy, our core competence. This also provides a clear message to the markets and our business partners and will allow us to be compared more easily to other renewable operators. We have a number of exciting developments underway and we look forward to sharing these with shareholders as they progress as we build a truly international green energy provider."
