Gorman Controls Inc., a Prince Edward Island based company, received support from the Rural Broadband Fund for a project to develop a storage controller aimed at the agricultural industry for monitoring environmental factors in storage facilities.

The Rural Broadband Fund was launched in December, 2009 with the mandate to stimulate P.E.I.'s rural economy through the use of the Island-wide broadband network.

The next call for applications to the Rural Broadband Fund is expected to be released in the summer of 2011. Three more rounds of funding are expected in order to fulfill the province's commitment of $1 million over five years.
