Seven companies in northwestern Ohio that focus on green technology initiatives recently received almost $1 million in funding. The purpose of the money, which affects 250 green jobs, is to expand knowledge and thus job opportunities in the growing green technology field.
The grants, which add up to about $990,000, come from Ohio’s energizing careers program, which the State Energy Sector Partnership Training program of the national American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funded last year. The funding will enable Ohio to grow in its green technology and alterantive energy standing.
“We were able to put together some training needs and other gaps that we could fill with the grant,” said Mike Bishop, general manager of the one of the seven funded companies – the Poet Biorefining ethanol plant in Fostoria. “We’ve already identified which team members will get the training.”
Multiple companies focus on solar and wind energy green technology
The other six companies that will benefit from the $990,000 in funding for green technology training include TecnoSunSolar USA of Toledo; Marathon Special Products of Bowling Green; Pro-Pak Industries of Maumee; Argo-Hytos of Bowling Green; Applied Energy Technologies of Maumee; and AP Alternatives LLC of Ridgeville Corners.
TecnoSunSolar USA creates green technology devices, such as those that track the movement of the sun to buttress solar energy efforts, while Marathon Special Products produces electrical wiring devices for wind and solar energy technology parts. Applied Energy Technologies of Maumee develops mounting systems for solar panels, and AP Alternatives LLC creates products used to install these systems.
The Ohio grant money is intended only for businesses that operate in the biomass, solar and wind industries and allow these companies to provide current and new employees in green jobs with training through local institutions of higher learning.
