West Branch Wind Energy Plant Layoffs

Updated:

 

A wind energy plant in West Branch is laying off 40 workers.
    
This is just months after White House officials visited the Acciona plant to push for wind energy tax credits. 
     
Even though the credit has been extended a year there's still uncertainty in the workforce. 
     
Acciona joins the likes of Clipper Windpower and Siemens' that have cut positions in the past year.
