Hemlock Semiconductor is nearing the end of the first phase of of its plant in Clarksville, Tenn., according to company officials.

The company hopes to begin production next year.

The $1.2 billion plant will employ 500 full-time workers when completed and produce close to 12,000 tons of polycrystalline silicon per year initially.

However, this is almost certainly not the end of the project. The plant site is designed for a potential four construction phases, which could turn into a $5 billion investment over time.
