Hi Peter, I think this was also reported back in June on Greentechmedia portal: http://www.greentechmedia.com/articles/read/Romney-Backed-Konarka-and-its-Organic-Solar-Cells-File-For-Bankruptcy/ The title made sure to mention Romney's involvement in this! Ironic, given there is so much bashing of Solyndra and the current US President! MP Divakar

Another solar company gone. I am surprised it has been for around for 10 years.

It seems like the company was a big solar RD venture and had not yet been able to manufacture anything. This seems to be a most difficult way to create a company, my hat is off to them for trying. I continue to read about solar companies failing and am wondering if solar is just not yet ready to be a mainstream business. Solar power is a great idea, but only for limited use cases (like remote power needs), but needs a lot more RD breakthroughs before it can become a real powerful force in alternative energy supply.
