GE’s New Solar Plant in Aurora, Colorado

In two years, GE has announced 15 new manufacturing plants or existing facility expansions in the United States, from a new locomotive manufacturing plant in Texas and an aircraft engine composites factory in Mississippi to refurbished appliance and lighting facilities in Kentucky, Alabama and Ohio, among others. GE’s recent breakthrough in solar energy technology—earlier this year achieving the highest-ever reported efficiency for CdTe thin film solar panels—will be brought to market at a new manufacturing plant to be built in Aurora, Colorado, the company announced last night at an event with Governor John Hickenlooper. When completed, the expansion will create the country’s largest U.S. solar panel manufacturing plant, 355 advanced manufacturing jobs at the new plant in Colorado and approximately 100 additional jobs in New York, at GE’s renewable energy headquarters in Schenectady and the GE Global Research Center in Niskayuna.
