|Cutting back on trade shows?|
The sun isn't shining on solar panel manufacturers this week. More "green jobs" prove to be economically unsustainable:
Solar manufacturer Solon said yesterday it will close a solar panel factory in Arizona in response to intense global competition on prices.
The Germany-based company said it will phase out a Tucson panel facility by October, cutting 60 jobs in the process. Instead, Solon will focus its product development efforts on designing and building large-scale solar installations using panels from different makers.
This announcement follows yesterday's Evergreen Solar bankruptcy.
