The Department of Energy canceled loan guarantees for two solar energy projects (SolarCity Corp. and First Solar) recently. The agency had offered SolarCity Corp. a $275 million conditional loan guarantee in September for a SolarStrong project to install solar panels on military housing at as many as 124 bases across 33 states, doubling the total amount of residential solar installations in the U.S. First Solar had received a $1.93 billion partial conditional loan guarantee. Both companies were informed that there was insufficient time to process all of the requirements before the September 30 deadline.
