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!
