Solar project halted by labor dispute could resume 

Construction of one of the nation’s biggest urban solar power plants could resume today. Work was halted Tuesday and Wednesday by general laborers protesting a city ruling that found electricians should perform most of the work at the Sunset Reservoir project.

Laborers hope that Friday’s contentious ruling, which will affect upcoming city-backed solar projects, will eventually be reversed.

In the meantime, the ruling was clarified during crisis talks Wednesday, which will allow laborers, from mainly disadvantaged city neighborhoods, to maintain solar panels and perform some other duties today on the city-backed job site, according to Recurrent Energy CEO Arno Harris.
