Solyndra Sues Chinese Solar Competitors

October, 2012
KQED

The failed Fremont-based solar company Solyndra is suing China’s three largest solar manufacturers for alleged anti-trust violations. Solyndra’s lawyers say the Chinese companies conspired to put Solyndra out of business by flooding the U.S. market with cheap solar panels. The lawsuit accuses Suntech, Trina and YingLi of price fixing.

Solyndra is the Silicon Valley start-up that famously went bankrupt last year after receiving a $535 million federal loan guarantee. Its demise has been a black eye on the Obama administration.

Host Mina Kim talks with Dan Kammen, director of the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory at UC Berkeley.
