      Keyser, WV - The US Wind Force Foundation, Inc. announced the grant recipients for the Community Benefit Fund sponsored by Pinnacle Wind, which is indirectly owned and operated by Clearway Energy Group. Sixteen grants ranging from $400 to $3,000 and totaling $23,030 were allocated to local organizations, bringing the wind farm's total donations to $273,305.

      Twenty completed grant applications were received and evaluated by a local Allocation Committee made up of eight members of the community. Awardees included area schools, fire departments, the public library, and other local groups that will apply the funding to specific projects.

      The committee is chaired by Keyser resident Cindy Pyles. 'I appreciate the continued commitment and the amount of effort the Allocation Committee exerted in its review of the grant applications. They did an outstanding job. We appreciate that the developers of Pinnacle Wind designed a process for allocating grant money that allowed for local decision-making,' said Pyles.
