AWS Truepower LLC, a renewable energy consulting and information services firm based in Albany, N.Y., has been presented with an Export Achievement Certificate (EAC) from Rep. Paul Tonko, D-N.Y., and the U.S. Department of Commerce.
The EAC was created in 2001 to recognize small and midsize businesses that successfully enter the international marketplace for the first time or have successfully entered a new market.
‘This award demonstrates the important role exporting can play for local companies like AWS Truepower,’ says Tonko. ‘It is also a prime example of how the renewable energy industry is creating jobs in New York state. To continue this momentum, it is important that we establish a national renewable energy standard so that companies like AWS Truepower can continue to flourish and bring high-paying jobs to our local communities.’
