Competition is fierce when it comes to attracting companies to Delaware. With Senate Bill 127, First State public entities and businesses can perhaps speed by the pack of would-be out-of-state hosts. Infrastructure is costly, and the newly created Site Readiness Fund is aimed to bring a financial boost to qualified entities. Through the legislation, grants, loans and economic assistance will be available for infrastructure construction, renovation or expansion projects for commercial and industrial sites. First State businesses can tap into the fund, as well, for expansion purposes.

The Bloom Energy that just leased space in Fremont, California, for manufacturing! — Cal William
