Dec 01 2010 - As many as 1,700 green energy jobs in southwestern Ontario are to be announced this week, according to Queen’s Park sources.

The announcements are part of an energy policy blitz as the provincial Liberal government tries to take the offensive on the energy file.

The new jobs are coming as a result of three projects:

• On Thursday, the government will announce that a new Siemens Canada facility to manufacture wind turbine blades will be built in Tillsonburg.

The new plant will employ 300 full-time workers, and will result in another 600 construction and indirect jobs. {read rest}
