Site Selection Group, a global location advisory, economic incentive, and corporate real estate services firm, worked with Canadian Solar to locate a 5 GW Solar PV cell production facility at the River Ridge Commerce Center in Jeffersonville, IN. The project is one of the first large-scale solar cell production projects in the United States and will create approximately 1,200 jobs and invest more than $800 million.

“We are thrilled to have supported Canadian Solar on their latest site selection project,” explained Josh Bays, Senior Partner and leader of SSG’s industrial practice. “The River Ridge Commerce Center possesses all the ingredients to ensure Canadian Solar’s long-term success.”

SSG helped identify and secure the optimal location based on workforce, business environment, utility & infrastructure, logistics, and economic incentive considerations. SSG provided location advisory, real estate, and economic incentive services for the project.

“The successful and coordinated involvement from federal, state, local, and utility partners should be a case study for large-scale economic development projects,” said Kelley Rendziperis, Senior Partner and leader of SSG’s economic incentives practice. “This collaboration and meaningful support made for an impressive partnership that will flourish well into the future.”
