Tax incentives and low-cost loans are available for business owners

The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at SUNY Canton will be helping business owners adapt to a completely new set of energy demands through their upcoming seminar “Energy Challenges and Solutions for Business in the 21st Century.”

The seminar will be held in conjunction with the North Country SBDC in Plattsburgh at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 28, at ComLinks located at 343 West Main Street in Malone. Seminar speakers will outline the opportunities to adopt renewable energy systems and creating energy efficient business models. The event is free and open to the public.

The New York State SBDC, in partnership with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and the New York Business Development Corporation (NYBDC), has formulated an Energy Savings Program that will encourage business owners to implement energy efficiencies that will allow their firms to compete on a favorable basis in a global economy.

Seminar speakers Anthony Presti, Program Coordinator for the SBDC’s Energy Savings Program, and NYSERDA representatives will detail measures which, when implemented, will produce maximum savings for the business owner.

Business owners will learn how they can work with NYSERDA and SBDC Advisors to: implement energy efficiency projects; secure the financing to achieve energy efficiency or even to build green buildings; evaluate other renewable energy sources such as solar and wind; improve environmental performance by being greener; evaluate energy efficiency opportunities in all areas; and improve their bottom line.

Under the Energy Savings Program, an SBDC advisor reviews the NYSERDA suggested efficiencies with the business owner to analyze the potential savings of implementing the changes. Eligibility is open to small and medium-sized businesses, as well as industrial and commercial facilities and the New York State SBDC will subsidize one half of the cost of the NYSERDA review for the first 100 statewide clients of the program.

There is no charge for the program, but pre-registration is required. Contact the Canton Small Business Development Center at: 315-386-7312 or email sbdc@canton.edu to register and to obtain up-to-date information.

The Canton and North Country SBDCs work one-on-one in a confidential setting with emerging, existing, and expanding entrepreneurs. SBDC staff members provide these services at no cost to clients in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Warren, and St. Lawrence counties. The Canton and North Country SBDCs are part of a statewide program funded in part by the U.S. Small Business Administration and the State of New York.
