The Dow Chemical Co. recently announced the creation of 100 new full-time jobs to support the development of its DOW™ POWERHOUSE™ solar shingles at its Midland, MI, facility. This is the result of continued collaboration between Dow, the state of Michigan, and the city of Midland to accelerate production of the shingles and create new, advanced manufacturing jobs that are helping make Michigan a “green tech” hub of the new U.S. economy, according to Jane Palmieri, Dow Solar general manager.

“This represents a significant milestone toward bringing our DOW POWERHOUSE solar shingles to the market in 2011, and confirms that we are on track to deliver this pioneering new residential solar technology next year,” Palmieri said. “It is also the first phase towards bringing more than 1200 jobs to the region by 2014 to support the production of our solar product here in Midland.”

The initial wave of solar-related jobs at Dow’s Michigan operations will be in manufacturing, with the hiring of qualified candidates expected to begin as early as the end of September.
