Mass. Green Energy Companies Eye Other States’ Stimulus

This article is more than 10 years old.

Standing before an array of solar panels at a Nevada Air Force base on Wednesday, President Obama praised the role he says the economic stimulus will play in developing alternative energies.

“The nation that leads the world in creating new sources of clean energy will be the nation that leads the 21st-century global economy,” Obama said. “That’s the nation I want America to be and that’s the nation you want America to be.”

The stimulus package includes $70 billion for energy-related programs. Some of that will go to the Commonwealth and local governments here. But Massachusetts’ growing green-energy sector is also looking to get some of the dollars earmarked for other states.
