Just announced last night, there is a solar factory coming to Clinton TN. This is expected to bring in around 400-500 jobs.
This is exceedingly good news for 2 reasons. The first is more solar panels, more off grid support and energy. The second of course is more jobs.
However, dont get too excited yet. People still need to get into the solar idea. Right now, solar is a good supplement, but not the end all of energy solutions. Its best for homes as stand alone or back up power. Especially in east Tennessee, when some springs we can go almost a month with no actual sunlight.
Regardless, the full announcement will be coming this afternoon, so lets hope it spells good news for the people of east Tennessee.
