Economic Opportunities

Green Economy

The Plattsburgh-Lake Champlain region is a strong player in the emerging green economy.

Our TRANSPORTATION EQUIPMENT cluster is producing the 21st century mass transit equipment that will increasingly be greening our cities and our country. This includes railcars and locomotives by Bombardier and buses by Nova Bus.

Our GREEN ENERGY sector includes major new wind farms, with more planned, and innovative programs in Alternative Energy and Wind Technology at Clinton Community College

Our leading position in the world of logistics and supply chains is allowing us to play a growing role in Green Transportation & Business Practices, led by the GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT program at Plattsburgh State University.

Our special links with Montreal and the Quebec technology community led to the Quebec-New York Green Corridor Agreement in 2008, a collaboration we are now leading with the New York State and Quebec Governments, aimed at fostering green practices and development in our region.

Combining all of the above with our strong connections to clean technology and nano-technology sectors within New York'S Tech Valley, and our majestically green surroundings in the Adirondacks, you should look to us as a place for green investment, green advancement and green employment.
