Americas Wind Energy Corp. (AWE), a manufacturer of medium-sized wind turbines, has announced U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) grants for projects involving rural businesses in Iowa and Oregon that carried the company's wind turbines.

Four projects will receive $500,000 each from the USDA with the goals of creating economic opportunity and reducing energy costs for farmers, ranchers and small businesses, according to the department.

One of these awards has resulted in an order for an AWE 900 kW wind turbine for installation in 2008. AWE expects additional wind turbines to be ordered in the next few weeks.
