GE Energy Storage is hiring as many as 75 workers by the end of the year as it moves toward tripling the production of its batteries at the start of 2013. That would bring the head count to 225, half the number of employees the plant will employ at full production, said Tim Baechle, battery operations leader.
We take for granted that when we flip the switch, the lights will go on. But after a big storm — or a zombie pandemic — you might experience some power disruptions. GE recently unveiled new home generators that have reduced fire risk, so they can be placed closer to the actual dwelling. That may make generators less of an eyesore. And you don’t want to have to cross a lawn full of zombies to check on your power supply.
Brian Palmer is the chief executive of GE Measurement and Control Solutions, a $5 billion energy technology unit of General Electric Co. based in Billerica. The unit, formed through a series of local acquisitions over the years, has about 800 employees in Billerica and Avon, who make energy-measuring instruments and conduct research and development. The headquarters was in Minden, Nev., until about a year ago when Palmer relocated it to Billerica. He recently spoke to Globe business editor Shirley Leung about the move.
