    Typical waste. I'll be curious to see the Statists defend this one.

    Your own link provided your answer but being a cherry picking animositist against all things solar and renewable you decided to launch another of your hatred threads anyway.

    Must suck to be so bitter and sour as you are.

    It may be a waste. It is very much an uphill battle to compete with a Chinese workforce and Chinese state subsidies of strategic interests.

    It would be even more of a waste to subsidize solar installations and then buy all the components from China.

    Americans just can't make shit anymore can they?

    Oh...So it's them doggone Chinks cutting off our nuts on costs again!

    Yet, somehow or another, neither the Boyking nor tha Governator could see that one coming, before they dumped zillions of dollars and their reputations into this flaming sack of poo.

    How'z that hopey-changey workin' out for ya? :lol::lol::lol:

    P.S...I left that passage out on purpose, just so junior Dick Tracys like you would fall for it. :lol::lol::lol:

    sure you did!

    Like I said this may be an impossible climb, since we let our whole national economy be gutted by every president since Reagan.

    Wait a minute.

    We had supposed economic geniuses throw over $1/2 BILLION, at a commercial enterprise that could be so easily undercut by foreign competitors?.....And you blame the competitor?

    Oh, Harriet!! :rofl:

    It hasn't been undercut yet.

    They closed the old plant and retained the new plant.

    Read your own OP.

    If business is truly expanding, why would they have closed the other plant, laid off workers and canceled contracts?

    C'mon......:lol:
