OTTAWA, Aug. 12 (UPI) — Canada’s latest forays into clean energy projects for solar and wind power generation are set to create 1,400 jobs that are a small part of a 50,000-job target in the green energy sector.

The 1,400 jobs will be created as Ontario’s first wind turbine blade manufacturing plant and a solar module manufacturing facility get going, officials said. Together the projects will serve Ontario’s growing clean, green energy industry and create the new jobs, said the officials.

Canadian Solar Inc. said Thursday that Guelph, 60 miles west of Toronto, would be the site of its first module facility in North America that will create up to 500 jobs.
