Renewable Energy Firm Plans Layoffs

Less than a year after laying off 87 employees, Mission Solar Energy, headquartered in Brook City-Base, at the southern edge of San Antonio TX, announced a second round of layoffs. The layoffs are occurring as the solar panel manufacturer completes a contract to provide panels for CPS Energy-commissioned solar farms. The exact number of employees who will lose their jobs is unknown.

Mission opened its doors on 85 acres in September 2014, and at one time, employed 400 people. Mission solar panels were used to build some of Texas’ larger solar farms. However, less demand from utility scale projects, combined with international competition, has forced the company to cut production.

A company spokeswoman said impacted employees will be provided with a severance package and transition assistance. “We do feel that market conditions will normalize, and when that happens, we’ll adjust accordingly,” she told the San Antonio Business Journal.
