JCIDA to back loan for Convalt

Convalt Energy will receive a $1.25 million bridge gap loan from the Jefferson County Industrial Development Agency and local development corporations in Watertown and Sackets Harbor as it plans its solar manufacturing plant on Route 12F in Hounsfield. Watertown Daily Times

HOUNSFIELD — Convalt Energy made a big announcement on Wednesday with plans to build a second 300,000-square-foot manufacturing plant near the Watertown International Airport.

The news came a day after the renewable energy company received an approval from the Jefferson County Planning Board for a 330,000-square-foot solar panel manufacturing plant at the site near the airport. It was the company’s first hurdle for its original investment. The Hounsfield Town Planning Board is slated to take up the site plans for the first plant on Tuesday night.
