Atlantic Wind and Solar Inc. Contracted to Carry Out a Renewable Energy Feasibility Study for the Morton Salt Company

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - September 9, 2009) - Atlantic Wind and Solar Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AWSL) is pleased to report that it has been contracted by the Morton Salt Company to assess the feasibility of producing electricity from renewable energy ("RE") at its major salt producing facility on the island of Great Inagua in the Bahamas. AWSL is excited to be involved in this project in light of its unbridled enthusiasm regarding the enormous potential to exploit the very rich Wind & Solar resources prevalent in the Bahamas and the entire Caribbean region.

About The Morton Salt Company

Having roots that date back to 1848, Morton Salt is an iconic United States company producing salt for food, water conditioning, industrial, agricultural, and road/highway use. Based in Chicago, the company is North America's leading producer and marketer of salt, with large quantities of the finest quality salt being produced at its major operations on Great Inagua, where it comprises the island's leading industry and employer.

... Taking Renewable Energy to the Next Level

In business for 161 years, the Morton Salt Company appreciates the value and power of Renewable Energy more than most: Its enormous salt production of over a million tonnes annually on the Bahamian island of Great Inagua has, by design, used both wind and solar power passively since operations began. In fact, without these two dependable sources of renewable energy, Morton's Inagua salt operations would never have been possible. Little wonder, then, that the Morton Salt Company is seeking to take its use of Renewable Energy to the next logical level, i.e. to harness these same limitless sources of energy for the production of electricity to power its Inagua operations, as well as addressing the energy needs of the community of Mathew Town, Capital of Inagua and headquarters of the Company's Inagua operations.

Atlantic Wind and Solar's I.R Director, Mr. Brent O'Connor commented, "We are especially excited because, should the feasibility study lead to implementation, it would be the first hybrid renewable energy system used to solely power any major manufacturing facility in the Caribbean, thereby verifying the RE potential for all to see and opening up many new possibilities for Atlantic's products and services in this region."
