“When the energy efficiency team partners with the economic development and other great agencies like this one, it is satisfying to able to offer customers assistance in so many ways with a host of programs and offerings, said Laura McNeill, Sr. Representative of our Channel Sales area.

With a big manufacturing boom on Long Island, we’re taking every opportunity to get the word out about our economic development programs.

Recently, we partnered with PSEG Long Island and Stony Brook University’s Manufacturing and Technology Resources Consortium to educate manufacturers on programs and resources that can help them save money. Specifically, we talked about different grants, rebates, energy efficiencies, and new customer solutions. The forum was at an economic development expo at the Composite Prototyping Center in Plainview, Long Island.
