It's an older story from December 16--and the details are behind a firewall--but the Tower Timberjay reported in Future cloudy for solar panel maker:
A solar panel manufacturer, that has claimed millions of dollars in public subsidies since opening in 2011, has laid off all but two workers and faces an uncertain future . . .
This is more bad news for the Range, where about 2000 iron miners have been laid off because of the downturn in the American steel industry. It's also likely to spur anger among other solar panel firms that did not enjoy the subsidies that were directed toward Silicon Energy.
We'll have more in this post as we learn more.
