World's largest solar plant may be built in Cle Elum
U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell participated in the announcement, praising the plans. She pointed out the value of federal tax credits for solar projects, which she helped to extend.
"This project will move Washington into the second largest solar producer by megawatt, in the United States — behind California," Cantwell said.
The company also plans to lure a solar-panel manufacturer to Cle Elum, to produce the panels locally.
Trott said the project would create "hundreds" of jobs in the area.
This project is a good idea
and hopefully i will be
completed. There is a strong
neede to move away from
traditional energy sources into
newer ones, especially those
that do not polute.
