OUR VIEW: Future in doubt, but United Solar made a difference

We’re all hoping for the best, but the outlook isn’t good for the future of United Solar Ovonics in Greenville. While we wish things were different, the fact is we are living in a time where nothing is guaranteed. That could be said for all the times we’ve lived in, but it is always more painful in the present. As for United Solar and Greenville, it hasn’t been a bad ride at all. People who took advantage of the opportunity presented by forward-looking USO received invaluable screening and training with Montcalm Community College and even more by the company itself. The experience has spurred confidence and the desire to keep moving forward in folks who perhaps would not otherwise have been inspired to do so.
