A solar power company is working to bring more jobs here to Southern Illinois. San diego, CA company “Solar Alliance” is hoping to build a new facility that will be staffed with currently unemployed or underemployed coal mine workers. This pilot project will take close to two and a half years to complete and will start in 2017, if everything goes as planned. The company is still deciding on the exact location for this facility.
