A Pair of Stories on the Collapse of Solyndra
Solyndra went caput, but other solar companies throughout the country -- and here in the East Bay -- are doing just fine. If anything, the collapse of Solyndra is a good sign for the solar industry: it means it's maturing, and the market is functioning (story 1: "Solar Is Still Humming," which the Treehugger blog picked up, or so I hear). Yet at the same time, the political fallout from the bankruptcy has been a bit more insidious (story 2: "Solar Takes a Hit"). If you read only two stories about the solar industry this month, they may as well be these. I mean, why not? Now if I could just get my wife to read them.
