Spire Expands UNICOR Module Production To 75 MW


Spire Corp. has entered an agreement with UNICOR – Federal Prison Industries Inc. to expand its current 25 MW module manufacturing capacity with the addition of a 50 MW module manufacturing line to be located in Sheridan, Ore.

UNICOR is a wholly owned government corporation that is authorized to operate industries, such as solar PV factories, in federal correctional institutions throughout the U.S. Spire says its module manufacturing allows inmates to gain substantial green-collar knowledge that is highly desired by employers.

By expanding to a 75 MW capacity, Spire has added nearly 500 jobs, which ultimately provides approximately 300 inmates with job skills.
