Green for Green

We’re all gearing up to help small businesses in New York understand and gain most advantage from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. We’ll try to keep up-to-date with the details both here in the blog and on the NYS SBDC home page.

Specifically wondering what the Recovery Act has to offer green businesses? “Stimulus Package Has Green for Clean Energy” from Entrepreneur.com discusses how the Recovery Act will offer tax incentives, bonds, grants and loan guarantees that may be particularly helpful to clean energy companies. Cash grants in particular will help individuals or businesses install solar energy systems – good news for installation and related firms.

Don’t forget that small businesses can save money right now by lowering their energy usage. NYS SBDC, NYSERDA, NYBDC and others have teamed up to offer a new energy savings program- get more details here.
