Solar is hot??? maybe for Applied...Solar business is driven by government substidies...and many governments are planning to eliminate those...remember Spain after it suddenly cancelled their programs? 2GW solar capacity went up in smoke...Kris

Hi. True. Applied shut down SunFab, which was a turnkey offering based on thin-film solar technology. Applied could never bring down the cost fast enough. But separately, Applied also sells standalone systems for solar cell production. That business is very strong-much to the surprise to even Applied.

"5. Solar is hot-again". I thought Applied has just closed down it's SunFab.
