Obama to visit Orion Energy Systems in Manitowoc

MANITOWOC (AP) -- President Barack Obama will visit Orion Energy Systems in Manitowoc on Wednesday when he visits Wisconsin.

The company makes high efficiency lighting and renewable solar technology for commercial and industrial businesses.

In a news release, the White House says the president will talk about the economy to employees -- the day after he makes the State of the Union speech.

Presidents traditionally hit the road the day after the speech to begin selling voters on their policy proposals.

He will also make other stops in the area, but the White House didn't specify where.

He will no doubt address the outcome of Sunday's Packers-Bears championship game, since he predicted a Bears win.
