Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development  3/31/10


Harrisburg – Pennsylvania is strengthening its position as a leader in alternative energy innovation with new investments of more than $5 million in six projects, Governor Edward G. Rendell said today.
The projects are in six counties across the state and include three geothermal system installations, two biofuel projects, and one study that will examine the feasibility of mixed-income housing in Pittsburgh that would reduce utility consumption by up to 90 percent for its occupants.
"We are proving alternative energy technology can help families, businesses and municipalities save millions collectively on their utility costs," said Governor Rendell. "That’s a worthwhile incentive from our perspective, but we’re also putting people to work and fueling the demand for green collar jobs, while developing and deploying the technologies that will reduce our dependence on foreign oil and strengthen our national security."

Right around the time her mother was in the hospital for a heart attack, Nair got an idea for a business. With her own children to raise and knowing she would soon have to care for her ailing mother, she quit her job as a scientist for a large food manufacturer and took up office space in the Hershey Center for Applied Research.
