5 veterans making a difference in New York

After his service, [James Hendon] took a job at a friend’s small business, Bloc Power, which sought to encourage renewable energy projects in low-income neighborhoods of New York City. With that foundation, he set up his own energy startup called the Energy Economic Development Corp., which helps retrofit buildings to conserve energy. At the NYU Tandon School of Engineering’s Veterans Future Lab incubator, he continues to manage his company while helping other veterans develop their own.
