FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- British energy company BP Solar says it is offering to sell or lease a 140,000-square-foot addition to its manufacturing plant in Frederick.
The space was designed for an expansion of the solar-cell plant, but a company spokesman in Houston says increased global competition has forced BP Solar to change its plans.
The company said in October it would not use the space to expand production.
Spokesman Tom Mueller said Tuesday BP Solar expects to complete the nearly $100 million construction project in early summer.
