DOVER – In his weekly message, the Governor talks about Bloom Energy coming to Delaware. On Monday, Bloom will break ground on Bloom energy’s first East Coast manufacturing facility, to be constructed on the former site of the Chrysler plant in Newark, which is now part of the University of Delaware’s Science, Technology and Advanced Research campus. Once completed, it will bring an estimated 1,500 manufacturing, supply chain and construction jobs to the region.
“This Monday marks a new chapter as Bloom leaders and some great Delawareans will come together on the University’s STAR campus to break ground on that Bloom Energy factory,” said the Governor. “We’ll be joined by senior executives from some of Bloom’s new customers who’ll share their excitement at having servers made here in Delaware power their companies around the country. While we still have several steps to take before that factory opens, Monday is an important next step to create hundreds of new, quality careers here, as we work together to keep Delaware, moving forward.”
At noon every Friday, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
