Ener1, after receiving $118.5 million from DOE, filed for bankruptcy protection. Evergreen Solar, after receiving millions of dollars from the state of Massachusetts, filed for bankruptcy protection. SpectraWatt, backed by Intel and Goldman Sachs, filed for bankruptcy protection. Beacon Power, after receiving $43 million from DOE, filed for bankruptcy protection. Abound Solar, after receiving $400 million from DOE, filed for bankruptcy protection. Amonix, after receiving $5.9 million from DOE, filed for bankruptcy protection.

Solar Trust for America, after receiving a $2.1-billion loan guarantee from DOE, filed for bankruptcy protection. Nevada Geothermal, after receiving $98.5 million from DOE, warns of potential defaults in new SEC filings. Read more: http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/04/obamas_epic_green_fail.html#ixzz1tZf50Dmq
