European solar company considers Gresham, Oregon plant

Dark economic clouds shadowing businesses worldwide aren’t discouraging solar companies from considering manufacturing in Oregon.

A large European solar company has picked Gresham as its top U.S. candidate while seeking a site for multiple factories that could employ more than 2,000, public officials confirm. The company — which officials decline to name, citing confidentiality agreements — is weighing LSI Corp. property in Gresham against sites in Singapore and another country.

Other solar companies continue to "kick tires" in Hillsboro, where Germany’s SolarWorld recently opened its $440 million factory, says Larry Pederson, the city’s economic development manager.
