Green development remains a fast growing industry sector with a significant portion of stimulus monies dedicated to Green projects across the nation. Here in Sullivan County, the anticipated Green Technology Park (‘G-Tech’) and the Center for Advanced Sciences and Technology (‘CAST’) at the Sullivan County Community College will position the County as a regional leader in both the development of renewable and sustainable technologies as well as in the education of an equally prepared workforce.
The Sullivan County Partnership for Economic Development recently put a grant from New York State Electric and Gas (NYSEG) to use in attracting green business to the region. The marketing campaign, titled Smart Locations for Sustainable Business, is a component of The Partnership’s Business Attraction initiative. The ongoing initiative is aimed at firms that manufacture, produce or distribute products deemed energy efficient, green or otherwise qualified for LEED projects.
