United Solar Ovonic is opening its doors in my hometown of Greenville, Michigan. I was unable to find a press release stating as much on their site, but I did find the job openings.
Apparently, Greenville is slated to be in National News tonight on NBC Nightly News in an interview with Anne Thompson. Maybe this 2-3 minute segment will shed more light on the deal.
I am quite skeptical about this proposed deal. It’s a good sign that it’s a “green technology” using the old Electrolux/Frigidair/Gibson site. But, I wonder if it’s just a green version of smokestacking.
I suppose, only time will truly tell.
