Apparently there are still some who believe they can produce solar panels and power in the US at a profit. I just posted details at the end of the "First Solar to slash 2,000 jobs article": http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4371200/First-Solar-to-slash-2-000-jobs of a planned Chinese $5 billion investment in Nevada.

Meanwhile, First Solar is cutting jobs: http://money.cnn.com/2012/04/17/news/companies/first-solar/index.htm?hpt=hp_t2; there may not be a solar future in the good old U.S. of A.

I don't believe so. SunPower was incorporated in 1985, with grants from the EPRI and the DOE, as well as support from a couple of venture capital firms. See http://us.sunpowercorp.com/about/history/#
