As you probably know, the U.S. government is a huge purchaser of services and products. You may also know that there are special provisions in place to help small businesses compete for and win federal contracts. This combination means that contracting with the U.S. government could potentially be very profitable for your small business!
But you may not realize that there are also benefits to being an energy-efficient company, because federal regulations stipulate that the government must award a certain percentage of contracts to businesses that produce energy-efficient products, or have policies in place to promote a greener workplace.
For more information on contracting opportunities for energy-efficient businesses, check out this page developed by the Department of Energy about selling energy-efficient products to the federal government or SBA.gov's page on Green Contracting Opportunities.
