Press release from the office of Governor Robert Bentley:
MONTGOMERY— The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs today announced that The Westervelt Co. in Tuscaloosa will receive a $1.4 million loan to save energy and increase sustainability while providing work for contractors installing the energy-efficiency improvements.
The company is the latest business approved to participate in AlabamaSAVES, an ADECA program designed to help businesses install energy-saving upgrades, reduce operating expenses and boost employment.
“ADECA established AlabamaSAVES not only to help the state become more energy efficient, but also to increase economic opportunities for Alabamians,” ADECA Director Jim Byard Jr. said. “When a business becomes more efficient, it is better able to grow; that benefits our entire state, especially residents who need employment.”
