The City of Austin wants to bring a solar panel manufacturer to town with a bid to create more than 300 jobs.
The city is working on an economic development incentive proposal for Yingli Green Energy Americas, Inc. The company makes crystalline silicon photovoltaic solar panels.
Under the proposal, Austin would offer $354,561 over 10-years for the company to build a manufacturing facility that would create almost 303 jobs. Estimated annual salary for workers would be $35,038.
