United Solar Ovonic Announces Another Expansion

More good news for Greenville. We have blogged about Uni-Solar before, here and here, and for further information on the background of how this all came about in the first place, check out this post here.

United Solar Ovonic announced they'll expand four production lines at the Montcalm County facility, and will hire an undisclosed number of people for new jobs.

United Solar Ovonic, the maker of solar panels, saw its stock jump more than 43 percent Thursday, as investors learned about both their expansion and that their revenue jumped 24 percent in the third quarter.

Alternative energy is creating jobs, and Uni-Solar is living proof.

Did the Senate finish that work on the energy bill yet?
