Eco group files lawsuit to halt REC’s U.S. plant

OSLO, March 17 (BestGrowthStock) – An environmental group has filed
a U.S. lawsuit seeking to halt the construction and start-up of
Renewable Energy Corporation’s (REC) (REC.OL: ) silicon plants in
Moses Lake, Washington, the group said in a statement.

Norway-based solar energy components producer REC, which
took analysts and investors on a tour of its Moses Lake facility
on Tuesday, was not immediately available for comment.

The group, which calls itself “RECisEXCEPTIONAL”, says REC’s
expansion project failed to comply with safety and environmental
requirements under the federal Clean Air Act.

“The lawsuit seeks to halt the construction, start-up and
operations of two industrial facilities, known as Silicon III
and Silicon IV,” said the suit, according to a copy of the
document posted on RECisEXCEPTIONAL’s website.

The suit was filed in the U.S. district court in Spokane,
Washington, by attorney Gregory McElroy, the group said.
