According to a recent article in the Danville Advocate Messenger, a home-grown business has just announced plans to begin manufacturing solar panels in Danville, Kentucky in mid-December.
The company, Alternative Energies Kentucky LLC already has nine employees, and intends to expand to about 25 as production gets underway. The company has already secured $1.125 million in state tax incentives.
Company owner Troy Lay of Harrodsburg stated in the article,
“Cleaner energy is just smart, and we are probably five years behind what a lot of the rest of the world is doing with technology like this.”
