SCEC works with a diverse group of people and businesses across Washington County. Below are testimonials from some of our many partners, colleagues, businesses and community leaders.

Sunrise County Economic Council has been a key voice and advocate for economic growth and job creation in Washington County.  The Council has played an important role in the development of First Wind’s Stetson Mountain wind project and its support for the project reflects the Council’s continuing commitment to foster the economic growth of Washington County.

The folks at SCEC have been so helpful to the Downeast Institute from bookkeeping services to web design and administration.  Over the years, we have come to rely on SCEC’s assistance with grant-writing, strategic planning, and other advice that has played a significant role in DEI’s success.

As one of the cornerstones of economic development opportunity for Washington County, the Port of Eastport has the pleasure of working very closely with the Sunrise County Economic Council.  We see their ongoing support of Port endeavors as a key component to growing not only the Port of Eastport, but all of Washington County.
