The announcement, which will allow for the first-time, commercial deployment of thin-film photovoltaic technology using a new manufacturing process for Cadmium-Telluride panels anywhere in the world, was made last week by President Obama in his weekly video address.

Funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, this project includes two facilities, one in Longmont, CO and the other in Tipton, IN. The company anticipates that the project will create approximately 2,000 jobs during construction and 1,500 permanent jobs.

The multi-disciplinary Nixon Peabody team working on the matter was led by Prem Malali and included partners Scott Singer, Ruth Leistensnider, Elizabeth Whittle and David Resnick.

Nixon Peabody has an extensive renewable energy practice, which includes representing clients in all aspects of the financing and development of many types of projects, including solar, wind, fuel cells, geothermal, biomass, landfill gas, hydroelectric, and tidal.
