$435,700 Awarded to Support Hydroelectric Turbine and Training Projects in Iowa

 

March 9, 2011 (DES MOINES, IA) AmJet of Keokuk, Iowa was awarded a $325,000 grant by the Power Fund Board to support the building and testing of a hydroelectric turbine today. The grant will be matched with $200,000, and will allow AmJet to test, and potentially begin full scale production, of turbines suited to generate electricity from low head dams.

 

The Power Fund Board also approved a project with Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs, Iowa, providing $110,700 in grant funding for the purchase of a mobile training lab.  The mobile lab will allow the college to provide hands-on energy efficiency training at each of its satellite locations.
