Renewable Energy producing Renewable Energy
Alganomics has added new alternative energy sources to their culturing systems and process. As a result of their 2009 NC Green Business Fund grant award, Alganomics has added a solar system and hybrid windmills. The project focused on ways to conserve energy, utilize renewable energy and reduce the carbon footprint. This funding source was a conversion from State of NC funds to Federal American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Stimulus funds. Cape Fear Solar Systems of Wilmington, NC was the subcontractor, who was very much a partner in making the solar system happen. We would like to thank all of those hard working folks with the Board of Science & Technology, under the NC Dept. of Commerce, for their patience and support!
