NY’s Cleantech Business Incubator helped create 980 clean energy jobs (NY)
ALBANY, N.Y. — Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced that 141 clean technology companies have been supported and primed for further growth through the Governor’s Cleantech Business Incubator initiative. The initiative has attracted more than $215 million in private capital and created 980 high-quality jobs at the New York-based businesses statewide. The continued growth of New York’s emerging clean energy economy is a core component of the Governor’s Reforming the Energy Vision strategy to build a clean, resilient and affordable energy system.
“New York State is committed to supporting the development of this industry to reduce our energy consumption and create a more sustainable and resilient community,” Cuomo said. “Through this initiative we are giving the best and brightest entrepreneurs an opportunity to get their startups off the ground, helping to create jobs, spur economic development, and secure a cleaner and greener future for the next generation of New Yorkers.”
