Start up grants for a green business
Question submitted on 1/15/08

We are looking for information about grants for start-up costs for a business in the green industry. We are based in Indiana. The company intents to provide services that allow a homeowner/business owner to retro fit their home/building with energy efficient products. That would include tripolymer foam insulation, high efficiency heating and air (including geo thermal), Solar panels, tankless water heaters, reverse osmosis systems/ water filters, and high efficiency appliances.

The U.S. Department of Energy has some funding opportunities available at http://www1.eere.energy.gov/financing/. I don't know if they fund the kind of business you're interested in starting though. A better bet would be the Indiana Office of Energy and Defense Development. They're on the web at http://www.in.gov/energy/ENERGY/energydiv.html. There is contact information for the office at http://www.eere.energy.gov/state_energy_program/seo_contacts_by_state.cfm/state=IN.
