Evan Bontemps of Newmarket sets up his portable stoplight, designed to manage traffic during power outages. Bontemps' company received aid from the Green Launching Pad program.

Last week the Green Launching Pad made its latest round of grants to New Hampshire businesses. The idea is to provide support to companies that are or want to be eco-friendly, while also developing jobs.
