Let's see.... I wonder how long they will be in business. I hope for a long time, but with more than half of the funding from us, the taxpayer, it's going to be a sad day if they don't make it. Energ2 in Albany is still not up to all the employees they were to hire, and they are not able to keep everythign running. Mercy me! When will we learn that government just isn't capable of creating anything other than massive debt.
Good Luck SoloPower
