With the help of $700,000 federal tax credit for clean energy LM Wind Power in Grand Forks is hiring 170 workers.

The grant will be used to re-equip its factory producing wind turbine blades and was part of $150 million in clean energy tax credits announced by the U.S. Department of Energy.

LM officials reportedly said in October there were hiring more workers in Grand Forks based on increased demand for new wind projects. But grant it will mean an even larger workforce for the company, which is based in Denmark and has one other U.S. plant in Arkansas.

 

The Advanced Energy Manufacturing Tax Credit provides developers with a 30 percent investment tax credit. In Phase I of the program, 183 domestic clean energy manufacturing facilities were awarded $2.3 billion, according to the Department of Energy.
