On Friday, Green Idle Founder Neil Robbins joined government agencies, small business leaders, and key decision-makers, from across Nassau County at the annual Government Procurement and Business Expo at Farmingdale State University in Farmingdale, New York.
Representing Green Idle, Mr. Robbins had the opportunity to speak with key individuals from various Nassau agencies to discuss the important benefits Green Idle’s advanced solar-powered systems with lithium-ion battery backup technology could offer the County; ranging from renewable-energy infrastructure to how it handles its response during an emergency situation and everything else in between.
“We’re really grateful to the event coordinators for giving us the opportunity to meet with so many small businesses and agencies under one roof,” Mr. Robbins said of Friday’s event. “I would also like to thank Nassau County Executive Laura Curran, not only for her commitment to keeping the county competitive for small business but also for taking such a proactive role in making sure that Nassau residents are prepared for future disasters like Superstorm Sandy.”
The Green Idle solution can power all vital infrastructure reliably while removing fossil fuel from the equation. Between our technology’s efficient solar power generation and Lithionic Battery’s superior power storage, our products are able to be more than ready for any emergency situation. A Green Idle powered emergency generator can not only come online with full power storage and capability but can also generate more power while doing so, replenishing itself with no operator requirements at all.
In the area of disaster response, Green Idle technology can be used for a wide range of applications including emergency power for hospitals and ad-hoc triage centers, mobile command posts, ambulance, and EMT life-saving support systems, refueling stations, and more.
In a speech before the event, Nassau County Executive Laura Curran stressed the importance of MWBE, veteran-owned, and small businesses alike. “In Nassau County, we have a lot of small businesses, about 150,000, and our goal [is] to do more to encourage they do business with us,” Curran said. “You know, I think the message here is that we’re all in this together and that Nassau County is absolutely open for business.”
“The expo is designed to help small businesses work together,” said Lauren Lenopius of Farmingdale Unversity’s Small Business Development Center and also the organizer of Friday’s event. “[We] received a great deal of support from Nassau County.”
