Lack of Incentives Stalls Ohio's Solar Energy Manufacturing Effort
The city of Toledo has lost out on thousands of manufacturing jobs tied to solar product development because the state has not put effort into tax incentives or creating a viable marketplace, according to the newspaper's article. That's despite the fact that northwest Ohio has had success in the solar industry in the past.
The first-part of the newspaper's investigation reveals there are no tax credits specific to solar equipment manufacturers which are offered in other states and that while other state supported industries, such as coal, are provided grants, solar energy project funding is not available in a similar fashion.
The second part of the series, which will publish tomorrow, focuses on actions by the state governor's office to increase incentive packages for the solar industry.
