  • Keweenaw Chamber to Participate in the new Clean Energy Information Hub

    Keweenaw Chamber to help local businesses navigate the clean energy space. Will helpHoughton and Keweenaw County businesses with clean energy information and opportunities to save money and grow the economy.

    HOUGHTON, MI – TheKeweenaw Chamber of Commerce is on the path to become a clean energy leader.  The chamber signed on to participate in the new clean energy network and information hub called Chambers for Innovation and Clean Energy (CICE). CICE was founded by local chamber executives to help local chambers and member companies navigate the clean energy space, spur business innovation, and accelerate business competitiveness through clean energy.

    “We believe that clean energy is an economic development tool” said Glen Tolksdorf, President of Chamber. “We share a commitment to creating jobs and removing roadblocks to economic recovery, all while promoting the unique resources that exist here in the Keweenaw.”

    Chambers for Innovation and Clean Energy is working with a network of local chambers of commerce from across the nation, representing tens of thousands of businesses of every size, from every industry. CICE provides chambers with dozens of Clean Energy Best Practices they can replicate to help their members save money, attract investment, and increase competitiveness. CICE also connects chambers with leading energy experts to answer questions on financing, policy developments, and new technologies.

    “We’re thrilled to be a part of this clean energy network  with other like-minded chambers of commerce.  We’d like to help our local companies save money and become more competitive” said Glen Tolksdorf. “Together, we can help build the clean energy economy by helping our member businesses become more energy efficient, supporting incentives for local clean energy projects, and building a market for the clean technology products that could be developed, manufactured, utilized, or distributed right here in our region.”

    Through Chambers for Innovation and Clean Energy, the Keweenaw Chamber will provide valuable information, tools, and best practices for member businesses to save money and pursue local, state, and national clean energy incentives.
