Ontario is investing in a new solar manufacturing plant that is creating 71 new jobs in Mississauga. The plant will employ up to 200 people at full capacity and distribute solar panels across North America.
Silfab Ontario Inc., an Italy-based company, was attracted to Ontario by the province’s vibrant clean energy economy.
Ontario is on track to eliminate coal-fired power by the end of 2014 and move to clean, modern and reliable renewable sources of power – like wind and solar.
“This is terrific news for Mississauga families and Ontario’s growing clean energy sector,” said Amrit Mangat, Member of Parliament. “This announcement is helping our region turn the corner, growing our local economy, creating good jobs, and protecting our environment.”
