The value and the breakdown of the subsidy package are taken from: Annie Johnson, "Solar incentives: Here's where the money was spent," Nashville Business Journal, August 19, 2011; online at http://www.bizjournals.com/nashville/print-edition/2011/08/19/solar-ince.... The jobs and investment projections came from: "German Solar Firm Plans $1B Tenn. Plant," Nashville Business Journal, February 26, 2009.
The $210.5 million subsidy package included $83 million from the state in job tax credits, sales tax exemptions and infrastructure grants. On the local level, the company received property tax abatements worth $127.5 million over 20 years. The local property tax abatements are listed separately in the main Subsidy Tracker data under County PILOT agreements but without dollar amounts.
