Solar Company Fails to Meet Hiring Targets

Posted: Updated:

The Columbus City Council wants a solar panel manufacturer to pay for missing hiring projections. Our partners at The Republic report members passed a resolution this week calling on Nusun Inc. to pay a monthly fee after the company did not prove it had done enough to meet previous agreements. Nusun has hired 17 employees since a 2011 agreement, not the 80 it had pledged.

A city council resolution approved Monday outlines several steps the company must take to regain compliance by the end of next year.
