SBA officials promote green energy, manufacturing in Detroit visit

Detroit — Two officials with the Small Business Administration stopped Thursday at a Black-owned green energy company in Detroit to promote the Biden administration’s efforts to boost manufacturing and fight climate change.

Dunamis Clean Energy Partners LLC, which plans to start producing electric vehicle charging stations this year, “really represents building in America and buying American goods… which will help with economic recovery, investing in America, and really strengthening our economy, which is poised for a very strong, rosy future,” Geri Aglipay, SBA Great Lakes regional administrator, said while visiting the east-side business.

She was accompanied by Jennifer Kim, the agency’s associate administrator for field operations, who touted the $1 trillion infrastructure package passed last fall and signed by President Joe Biden. “Under the bipartisan infrastructure law, there is a lot of opportunity in Michigan, whether it’s helping infrastructure projects at the airport or other places, where small businesses have the opportunity to grow and expand their revenue,” Kim said.
