The money was part of $12 million the commission awarded through the Third Frontier program, an initiative designed to stimulate Ohio's economy through investments in technology.

The $2.9 million grant went to a group developing technology meant to help solar panels last longer. The group is led by Case Western Reserve University and also includes DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions, Xunlight26 Solar, Q-Lab, eQED and Underwriters Laboratories Inc.

Two internship programs in Northeast Ohio each received $321,000.
