Cascade Community Wind Co. (CCWC) has been awarded a $1 million grant and loan from the Washington State Energy Program. This award will be used to help CCWC install up to eight community wind turbines before December 2011.
The funds were awarded due in large part to CCWC's efforts to remove barriers to distributed community renewable energy projects, according to the company.
CCWC plans to install two smaller wind turbines this summer near Thorp, Wash., and another six turbines around the state next year.
