Economic summit touts BI’s green businesses

Two Bainbridge-based businesses were held up as the future of economic development at a Kitsap business summit on Thursday.

One business is the maker of the electric car you see above. Founded in 2007, Evergreen Electromotive has developed a prototype hatchback aimed at easing car drivers’ impact on the environment and lessening dependence on foreign oil.

The other island business highlighted at the Kitsap Economic Development Alliance summit was The Works, which has produced a prototype low-emission catalytic converter for pleasure boats.
