It's unclear exactly where in the state it'll be located, but this is good news:
A consortium of Chinese and American renewable energy firms said last week that they had chosen Nevada as the location of a 320,000-square-foot wind turbine manufacturing and assembly plant.The turbine plant, whose precise site has yet to be announced, will create an estimated 1,000 long-term manufacturing jobs in the state and is expected to be up and running by 2011.
It's nice we'll be able to keep these turbine manufacturing jobs in the States and (bonus!) we'll save a little extra carbon by not having to import as many turbines.Photo (cc) from Flickr user Kim Joar
