JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A closed Mississippi solar panel plant faces lawsuits after it said it was shutting down to retool its manufacturing line.

The Mississippi Business Journal reports at least three solar panel installers have sued Seraphim Solar Manufacturing USA for failing to fulfill contracts or reimburse prepayments.

Seraphim promised to invest $50 million and hire as many as 250 employees when it announced its plans for a Jackson plant in 2015.
