Business website shout-out: CLEENNW.org

ONE of an ongoing series of posts about useful area business websites.

Spokane and Inland Northwest business leaders and economic development folks are right in boosting the green economy that's blooming in this area.

You can find a very healthy consortium of industries and researchers tackling clean energy, all the way from Itron Inc., to a number of promising startups.

The website -- CLEENNW.org -- is worth looking at to get an overview of efforts among members of that group.

The acronym stands for Consortium of Leading Energy Efficiency Northwest Companies. Area businesses are encouraged to visit the site and add their names to the directory.

We liked the site's clean organization. The Spokane Web team of SiteCrafting.com developed the site for Greater Spokane Incorporated, which is taking the manager role for CLEENNW.org. SiteCrafting provided the work pro-bono, through a Gear Grant, awarded to nonprofits in town as a way to give back to the community.
