BOSTON (AP) Massachusetts is awarding $2.2 million in grants to nine wind energy projects.

Officials on July 21 said the grants will help pay for the design and construction of three projects and feasibility studies for another six.

Those receiving the grants include municipalities, educational institutions, a farm, and a shopping center.

The design and construction funds are going to the town of Hanover, the Lynn Water and Sewer Commission; and the Massachusetts Department of Correction.

The money comes from the Massachusetts Renewable Energy Trust, funded through a surcharge on electricity bills.

Also July 21, Gov. Deval Patrick announced the state has received an additional $22 million in federal stimulus money for renewable power and energy efficiency projects.
