General Electric, which has been planning a monster thin-film manufacturing plant and been actively looking into siting in the U.S., has picked Colorado. According to the Denver Post, the new Primestar, a subsidiary of General Electric, facility will be in the L'Oreal Warehouse in Aurora, Colo.
Since April, when GE announced plans to build the plant, states have been vying for the opportunity to be the thin-film PV plant's new home.
Neal Lurie, executive director for the Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association said it was great news for Colorado, "especially in today's economy."
The plant will create an estimated 350 jobs.
Colorado's governor, John Hickenlooper, is expected to make an announcement on Friday, Oct. 14.
Currently, neither the state government nor GE is commenting on the news.
