Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 28, 2012
SolarTown, a supplier of solar energy products, has received certification as a qualified HUBZone small business concern from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
The government set up historically underutilized business zones (HUBZones) to stimulate hiring and economic activity in economically depressed areas of the country. SolarTown’s offices in the Columbia Heights community in Washington, D.C. are located in one of these designated areas.
Firms like SolarTown that meet specific criteria may be designated as HUBZone companies, which assist the federal government in ensuring federal contracting and employment opportunities are available in underutilized and underemployed regions. SolarTown’s HUBZone certification means federal program managers and contracting officers will have an easy avenue to allow SolarTown to supply solar panels and other solar energy products, to assist federal agencies in meeting small business contracting goals and to support President Obama’s goal of helping bring new jobs to underutilized communities.
SolarTown is one of only a few companies in the United States that sales solar energy products through a General Services Administration (GSA) contract and is a SBA-certified HUBZone firm. “We hope that as part of our new HUBZone certification that SolarTown will continue to grow and to contribute to the economic activity in Columbia Heights,” says SolarTown’s president, Keith Rosten.
SolarTown is working to be part of the climate solution, offering solar energy systems to the government and to every American interested in low-cost, high-quality renewable energy. SolarTown is headquartered in Washington, DC.
