But the other part even more important on the bigger issue of the whole PV industry in US is that the chinese outsubsidised their PV manufacturers more than we did. this is the over reaching weight around the neck of the PV industry.

It would have been much more delicious if Ford bought it to manufacture Mustangs. 5.0s of course.

Good question. I just want to know to whom will the check be written? The US treasury? The Chinese? The Obama campaign? The Obama bundler that ran Solyndra? George Soros?

This kind of setbacks will can not be afford by the Green Initiatives, it is a very sad closing of one of the good initiative, may be Seagate can strengthen the motive instead of completely destroying it.

Can't wait to hear their plans for the site. It is a prime location and they are getting it for a song. Unfortunately the $290,000,000 loss is being financed in part by ... Me.

I am happy to see a company growing in the US! I hope that the money from the purchase comes back to the taxpayers! I wonder how many other failed US backed enterprises will be sold for pennies on the US tax dollar?
