First up… In New Mexico, Solar power and green jobs are on the way for the town of Belen and Valencia County, both hit hard in the recession. Governor Bill Richardson delivered the good news about three new solar power dishes for Belen’s city hall, and a new 160 acre solar testing and research center—to be called Star Center.

Rick Scheu, VP of Operations for Integrative Solar said, “The construction of this project will employ hundreds of people during construction, and at least 50 positions after it’s built.”

The NY Times is reporting that 3 companies in Michigan, Clairvoyant Energy, Xtreme Power and Oerlikon Solar have committed to moving into the vacant Ford Wixom plant. Executives and local officials will gather at the plant this week to celebrate the redevelopment project, which the state sees as a centerpiece of its green-oriented revival effort.

Chief executive of Clairvoyant Energy, David Hardee, said Michigan was an ideal location for his solar-energy company because of the availability of so many skilled workers and its manufacturing background. The Wixom project is expected to create about 4,000 jobs, which would be one of the biggest green-energy developments in the state so far.

In Pennsylvania, Thousands of people apply for ethanol jobs – Construction of the ethanol plant near Clearfield is nearing completion and should be up and running at the start of the new year, according to the plants general manager Roger Schmidt.
