TN: Solar industry's promises bring environmental challenges



"As the state tries to reap the benefits of a growing solar industry

that could bring thousands of new jobs and billions in new investment,

the massive projects also bring with them environmental challenges in

the form of intensive manufacturing operations that will draw a

tremendous amount of electricity from the state's power grid used to

run sprawling chemical reactors. With just two investments -- Hemlock

Semiconductor Group near Clarksville and a similar Wacker Chemie AG

plant near Chattanooga -- Tennessee is poised to become a nationwide

leader in the production of polysilicon crystals, the basic building

block for the solar industry." (08/09/09)
