Clay Solar Company Succeeds While St. Aug One Closes

GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. -- "I'm a glazer," said Robert Cole, explaining his job at Alternate Energy Technologies. "It's like an assembly line, and I'm at the final stage of it."

Cole works, manufacturing solar thermal panels at AET in Green Cove Springs. He just heard about a different solar company closing in St. Augustine, STR Holdings, leaving 45 people without jobs this week.
