Solar Array Ventures May Bring 500 New Green Jobs to Fulton, New York

Solar Array Ventures may pick Fulton, New York as the site of a new production plant that will produce solar panels, according to a press release issue by Senator Charles Schumer. The plant will create as many as 500 new green jobs in Oswego County if Schumer has his way. The Senator is working hard to convince the company’s leadership to choose Fulton for the site of the new plant.

“A new solar panel plant in Fulton would be a win-win for the region and the company – Central New York offers the finest work force, critical space and key financial incentives for the company, and the new plant would create hundreds of new jobs and give a shot in the arm to the local economy,” Schumer was quoted as saying in the release.

Solar Arrays Ventures is a start-up company based out of Austin, Texas. The company expects to initially hire 250 people to work at its production plant, followed by an additional 250 workers in the second phase of the project.
