Eagle Mountain Center for Green Technology

Ontario County Office of Economic Development/Industrial Development Agency

Eagle Mountain has nearly 30 years of experience integrating alternative energy sources into houses and small commercial buildings. Its line of engineered green heating, cooling and hot water solutions offer environmentally sound, cost-efficient, affordable alternatives to conventional HVAC techniques.The company constructed a 20,000-square-foot Center for Green Technology facility on 100 acres in Bristol Valley, in Bristol, NY, across the street from Eagle Mountain’s headquarters. The energy-efficient, energy-generating facility will use 65 percent less energy than a traditional building of its size.Eagle Mountain plans to add 15 employees to its current workforce of 20. Some workers will stay in the original building, running a separate business that installs Eagle Mountain’s energy systems. The design and manufacture of these systems will move into the new building. Plus, there is room to expand—including classrooms the company will use to educate the public on what it means to be energy efficient.
