SUFFERN, N.Y. -- A new plant to assemble solar panels and all related components is coming to Suffern.It's slated to begin construction early in the year, by Ubiquity Energy Inc., in a selected location that benefits from easy and fast road, rail and port access.
Initially limited to assembly of imported and domestic parts, the plant will rapidly grow into manufacturing its own panels and structures to satisfy the growing demand for clean energy solutions across the nation.
As a first phase, also, through an agreement with Gen-X, an estimated 200 plus technicians will be trained in the new technology so they can provide consumer installations, sales and maintenance to industries, stores, malls and homes.
The trained technicians will be able to work independently and earn an average of $12 to $15 per hour for their services, way beyond federal minimum wage.
It is expected that by mid-year, the first systems will begin to be installed, and the response of the consumers will determine the speed at which the expansion plans will develop. The products coming out of the plant will be 10 percent manufactured in the U.S.A.
This new initiative not only will provide a large number of well-paid jobs in the Rockland County area, but the investment will demonstrate the confidence in the economy of the nation and its strong move towards clean energy solutions.
