I guess with employees no longer on the premises, no one is available to update this company timeline from the Solyndra web site, which includes entries like:
2008 - Commenced commercial solar panel shipments. Opened office in Germany
2009 - Reached $100 million in annual revenues
with something like...
2011 - Went belly-up, thus creating an opening for Republicans to attack, in ascending order, the company, the Dept of Energy program from which said company received a loan guarantee, the stimulus bill that spawned said program, and the President of the United States that pushed said stimulus bill.
Not to mention the entire concept of government trying to create jobs by any means other than tax cuts, and the hope that a green economy might one day be our ticket to clean energy with good-paying manufacturing jobs.
