Business leaders, local officials and energy experts gather to support Ohio policies that create green jobs Cambridge, Ohio – March 26, 2009 – On March 25, Edgetech I.G.

Inc. hosted Environment Ohio for a special event to introduce the organization’s new report “Growing Ohio’s Green Energy Economy.” Environment Ohio operates on national, regional and local levels to protect Ohio’s air, water and open spaces. The organization chose Edgetech to participate in the event because of Super Spacer’s contributions to meeting the stringent energy-efficiency standards (.30 U-Value) set forth for windows by the Economic Stimulus Bill.

“It was an honor for Environment Ohio to choose Edgetech and the City of Cambridge for this special event,” said Mike Hovan, President of Edgetech I.G. “As a contributor to worldwide energy efficiency for more than 20 years, Edgetech shares the same goal as Environment Ohio to preserve the natural and economic landscape in Ohio. We are grateful to Mayor Orr and other local officials for sharing this day with us.”

 Edgetech I.G. is active in raising the bar for energy efficiency guidelines and green building around the globe through its dedication to sustainable product development, as well as involvement with industry organizations and legislators. Additionally, Edgetech’s Super Spacer® is a major contributor to meeting the needs of window fabricators looking to certify their products to meet new ENERGY STAR® requirements and take advantage of the opportunities provided by the Economic Stimulus Bill signed by President Obama in February.

Environment Ohio’s “Growing Ohio’s Green Energy Economy” report exposes the breadth and depth of Ohio’s renewable energy industry and identifies more than 415 companies, including Edgetech, directly involved in the renewable energy supply chain, and an additional 60 organizations involved in auxiliary services to the industry.

The March 25 event brought together business leaders, local officials and energy experts to show their support for additional policies to generate jobs in the renewable energy industry in Ohio.
