Smells like financial shenanigans to me. I wonder what will become of the 500+ million the taxpayers are on the hook for, time will tell. It seems very strange that this company (if memory serves me correctly) had upwards of 20 visits to the White House before the loan guarantee was made and now they are out of business. I wonder if the backers of the company were donors? This is a very interesting story with a lot going on in the background.

Too much biased speculation and not enough information. I'll wait for the movie.

(not so) amazingly, the private equity guys were able to renegotiate their position to the head of the line a few months ago in case of bankruptcy.....

Golden chute sounding to me - wonder where the gold went. Naturally, if they thought they could build a FAB line in Fremont for a hundred or two million - I think that might be the issue. Cal Osha and Osha itself might just charge the fool out of them - Fremont et. al. as was the way most fabs just moved out of the nation.

Sounds like a solar mfg is not bound at happen on large scale in US...atleast not in silicon valley. Politics a big reason for the raid. so many others have backed out out or scaled back solar ventures recently...
