In addition to enlarging its existing San Jose operation, the company will construct and operate two new facilities in Portland, Ore. The plants are anticipated to create 450 permanent jobs, 270 construction jobs and several hundred additional supply chain jobs. The company manufactures flexible thin-film solar cells and modules.
