SCHOTT Solar Set to Inaugurate Flagship Manufacturing Facility in Albuquerque
(Albuquerque, NM) SCHOTT Solar will ceremonially inaugurate its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for products used to generate solar power on Monday, May 11, 2009, one year after breaking- ground on the project's first-phase. The 200,000 square-foot facility represents an initial investment of over $100 million USD in the Albuquerque region from the global SCHOTT Solar group. SCHOTT has created 350 jobs at the new facility, which will continue to ramp up production throughout the summer.

This is the first solar manufacturing facility to open after the economic stimulus was enacted in February. SCHOTT Solar has created 350 green-collar jobs at the new facility, which is the world's first production site for both utility-scale CSP receivers and PV modules
