Elaine Detonto, Jamestown Utilities Council Business Development Coordinator, recently identified the financial opportunities available to regional manufacturers looking to transition into climate tech/clean tech manufacturing.
Detonto spoke to the Manufacturers Association of Southern Tier members about the incentives available through Retool WNY at a recent meeting at the P-TECH Academy in Dunkirk.
Retool WNY, supported by the New York State Energy and Research Authority, educates business leaders and manufacturers of opportunities in the clean technology sector and promotes the area as a location for suppliers in the sector to develop manufacturing facilities. According to Ditonto, Retool WNY offers custom studies that can help regional manufacturers decide if they can convert or convert a product line to help supply parts or components for the climate technology or cleantech sector.
Manufacturers willing to purchase equipment or software to advance production of these products as part of the clean technology supply chain may also be eligible to receive grant dollars to be used for these purchases.
Details about opportunities available to regional businesses and manufacturers through Retool WNY are available by calling Ditonto at 716-661-1686 or by email: [email protected].
