  2. We are submitting a proposal to Third Frontier under the Advanced Energy program. I attended the bidders’ conference on August 19 at Tech Columbus and I understand the letter of intent can be submitted by email or by mail. I need email address and the mailing address.

    Thank you.

  3. I was very impressed by the presentations of the Ohio Third Frontier officials at the Bidders conference on September 19. I learned a lot things for which I would have sent questions otherwise. I also clarified that my proposal on Advanced energy saving smart window can be submitted under the Ohio Third Frontier Advanced Energy Progam.
