Washington, D.C.- Today, Representative Marcy Kaptur (OH-09) - Chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development - released the following statement on First Solar's $270 million investment in a research and development center in Perrysburg Township, Ohio.

"With the Inflation Reduction Act providing new federal support for an all-of-the-above American energy strategy, the global leader in solar innovation is getting even bigger - all right here in Northwest Ohio," said Rep. Kaptur. "First Solar's $270 million investment in a state-of-the-art research and development center means new, good-paying jobs in our region's growing energy manufacturing sector.
