‘Huge’ Solar energy project proposed for Kittitas Co

CLE ELUM — A patch of previously logged timberland just outside Cle Elum could sprout one of the world’s largest solar energy projects by late 2011.

Developers announced the proposed photovoltaic manufacturing and solar power generating plant Thursday, saying it will create hundreds of family-wage construction and manufacturing jobs for a total investment of more than $100 million.

Photovoltaics are a method for generating electricity by using solar cells to convert sunlight into power. The same solar technology powers calculators and watches.
