ALBANY – SunTegra of Port Chester is one of eight finalists for the $2.5 million 76West Clean Energy Competition in the Southern Tier of New York.
The competition complements “Southern Tier Soaring,” the region’s $3.1 billion investment to support economic and community growth.
As a condition of the award, companies must either move to the Southern Tier or establish a connection with the region, such as supplying components to other companies, job development opportunities with Southern Tier companies, or other strategic relationship with entities in the region that increases wealth creation and creates jobs.
If the companies are already in the Southern Tier, they must commit to substantially growing their business and employment in the region.
SunTegra develops, manufacturers, and sells solar products that can be integrated directly into the roof, providing a more appealing and efficient alternative to conventional solar panels for target applications such as roofing, garden/patio, sides of buildings, and infrastructure applications.
Other companies vying in the competition include MicroEra Power of Rochester, StorEn Technologies of Stony Brook, SolarKal of New York City, Biological Energy of Spencer, EthosGen of Wilkes-Bare, PA and Skyven Technologies of Dallas, TX.
