) manufacturing facility in North Las Vegas, Nevada. The facility will bring 278 green private sector clean energy jobs to Southern Nevada and, according to the Nevada Development Authority, will contribute $118 million in payroll and $12 million in taxes to the local economy in its first five years.
The company received a $5.8 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act competitive manufacturing tax credit, to open the new facility. The company has begun hiring area residents to fill management, technical and production jobs, and that 135 local construction workers will build out the facility over the next few months.
