Those who will benefit in particular from the commercialization of DG Energy’s technology are former workers from the automotive industry, where over 100 facilities have closed in the US in the past 20 years. Depending on the specific size, each DG Energy facility will create thousands of direct, indirect and induced local jobs in industries such as trucking, manufacturing, and construction.
DGE Program equipment production is expected to directly employ personnel distributed in New York, Ohio, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Indiana.
