New City, NY, United States, 2010/03/30 - Rockland County small business is a contender to win a $5K grant in a national competition. ISI Solar, a solar energy company, hopes to use the winnings to promote renewable energy resources. Public online voting open until April 9th.
ISI Solar, a Rockland County based company that designs and installs solar energy systems, announced today that it has been selected as one of the top thirty finalists in the VerticalResponse ‘New Deal’ for Small Business competition.
Sherri Paul, ISI Solar's office manager, says that she found the contest online while researching small business initiatives. "We were excited about the prospect of promoting our company and potentially winning a $5K grant, so we entered a 4 minute video highlighting our business, explaining why we do what we do, and how we would allocate the winnings".
James Albert, President and Founder of ISI Solar: "If we won, we would take that money and invest it in projects that would allow us to show the public what can be done as far as renewable energy technologies, and conservation of energy, which is the primary thing. Not everyone can install solar, but everyone can conserve energy."
Public Voting Held Until April 9, 2010
Small business finalists, including ISI Solar, will be on the competition page newdeal.verticalresponse.com for public voting until April 9, 2010. Members of the public are encouraged to visit the VerticalResponse ‘New Deal’ competition page and vote for their favorite small business. The prize winners will be announced on April 12, 2010 on the competition page.
