GESS International Inc., which moved its headquarters from California to Raleigh last year, says in filings with the N.C. Utilities Commission that each plant would cost about $30 million to build and would employ 16 to 19 workers, once they are in operation.

Shaun Lee, director of field operations for GESS, says his company plans to bring several of the projects on line next year. The Monroe project would be one of those, he says.
