April 6, 2023

Today, Georgians welcomed Vice President Kamala Harris to Dalton as she announced a historic investment in the Peach State’s solar industry that will boost our economy, fight climate change, and create thousands of good-paying jobs right here at home.

The Vice President announced a $2.5 billion expansion for Dalton’s Qcells solar plant – the largest community solar project in U.S. history – which will create 2,500 new jobs and have the potential to power 140,000 homes and businesses.

“Today’s announcement is a game changer for Georgia’s economy, environment, and working families – and just the latest example of how the Biden-Harris agenda is delivering for Georgians,” said Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “This historic deal is what Democrats’ Investing in America agenda is all about: bringing home private sector investments that will turbo-charge our economy, create thousands of good-paying jobs, and make Georgia a leader in the industries of the future – all while fighting climate change.”
