The Congressional Research Service released a report October 25 finding that solar panel manufacturers that have received loan guarantees from the Department of Energy will face the same market risks that contributed to Solyndra’s bankruptcy. Those risks include declining solar module prices, competition from new and established solar panel manufacturers, and reductions in subsidies and incentives in European and other international markets. The report, Solar Projects: DOE Section 1705 Loan Guarantees, concluded that 82 percent of the $16.15 billion in loans guaranteed under the 1705 program have been for solar projects, including nearly $12 billion for solar generation projects.
