Solar start-up eyeing Perrysburg

Ohio officials have approved tax credits for a Toledo start-up firm that is considering Perrysburg for a $105 million plant that would have 400 employees making make low-cost solar-energy panels.

A company official said yesterday that no decision has been made about where to situate the plant and that the firm continues to consider offers from other states and Canada.

But there are strong signs that the company, Willard & Kelsey Solar Group LLC, is leaning toward a former television components plant on Progress Drive, off State Rt. 25 in Perrysburg.

The Ohio Tax Credit Authority agreed this week to provide a credit against state income taxes worth 60 percent of Ohio payroll taxes withheld from employees. The job creation tax credit would last for 10 years.
