Solar Plant Slated for San Juaoquin Valley

Independent investors are looking to invest in Solar Generation in California's Central Valley.

A Michigan-based energy company is considering building a $250 million solar-roofing manufacturing plant in the central San Joaquin Valley that could create up to 3,000 good-paying jobs, a company official said Wednesday.

Energy Conversion Devices Inc., a publicly traded company valued at $620 million, is looking for a site for a 350,000-square-foot facility.

Being from Michigan, they must have never heard of the Tulare Fog!
