Hillsboro Solar Advantage

The Hillsboro Solar Advantage begins with jobs. As home to SolarWorld, the largest manufacturer of solar panels in the U.S. for more than 35 years, Hillsboro has a distinct advantage in the New Energy Economy. Solar manufacturing provides several hundred direct jobs and many ancillary industry support jobs. By encouraging and incentivizing solar, the Hillsboro Solar Advantage also provides for jobs in the trades for installing solar systems. Hillsboro supports the New Energy Economy, one that is built on American manufacturing of technology that supports a more sustainable future – one that uses the sun to provide more and more of the energy that we need.
