Chinese solar biz eyes Vancouver

Eugene-based Centron Solar looks into building an assembly plant in Vancouver, Wash.

Centron Solar, a Chinese solar panel consortium in Eugene, is in talks to build an assembly plant in Vancouver, Wash., citing the state's incentives for consumers who invest in alternative energy as a potential growth factor for the company.

Representatives of Centron Solar met Monday with representatives of the Port of Vancouver, the city of Vancouver, Clark Public Utilities and the Columbia River Economic Development Council to discuss the proposed plant, which might occupy space at the port and could employ up to 100 workers, the newspaper reported.

People involved in the talks described them as “preliminary.” But they added that incentives Washington has adopted for consumers who invest in alternative energy give the Vancouver plant “a better than even chance of going forward,” according to The Columbian.
