Republicans on the House Energy & Commerce Committee have put up a memo that was part of a rosy presentation (pdf) to members of Congress by Solyndra CEO Brian Harrison on June 22, less than two months before the solar-panel manufacturing company declared bankruptcy and shuttered its factory.
The title? "Exceeding Expectations: Solyndra Today." It starts like this:
Solyndra, one of the only volume solar manufacturers in the United States, continues to make excellent progress to the company’s overall annual strategic plan, while meeting the company’s technical, cost and performance milestones. The factory is ramping and Solyndra is hiring employees today, creating jobs at the company, within our primarily domestic supply chain, and through integrators and installers implementing our systems on rooftops in the U.S. and around the world.
