Access Accelerator’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) hosted the Energy Efficiency Awards to recognize businesses and entrepreneurs for their promotion of energy efficient practices.

Executive Director of Access Accelerator Samantha Rolle told ZNS News the awards are “the pinnacle of our renewable energy initiative we launched back in January. And its really to highlight those businesses, the top ten businesses, who we’ve deemed to be the most energy efficient based on the input, based on the criteria and based on their application that they submitted to the SBDC.”

Minister of Economic Affairs, Sen. Hon. Michael Halkitis addressed the event saying, “I look forward to actionable steps that business owners will take towards making their businesses energy efficient as this is what will truly transform the micro, small and medium sized landscape and promote increased efficiency, productivity and sustainability for MSMEs in The Bahamas.”

Some of the companies recognized at the awards ceremony was New Life Company Ltd. and The New Duff.
