NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Solar technology company Hemlock Semiconductor has scheduled two events in Michigan and Tennessee on Monday to announce a multibillion dollar investment.
Company spokesman Jarrod Erpelding said Friday the Michigan-based company will hold a morning news conference in that state and an afternoon conference in Clarksville, Tenn., but declined to discuss details.
According to a company press release, the group will discuss investments "to serve the emerging solar technology industry" at Austin Peay State University with Gov. Phil Bredesen attending.
Michigan Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm is expected to attend the announcement at Saginaw Valley State University.
