Solyndra’s bankruptcy may have put the proverbial nail in the coffin for solar energy investments. According to Howard Lindzon with, "voting green with your pocketbook can bankrupt you.” This comment came about after First Solar announced subpar earnings and the departure of its CEO. If Lindzon’s statement is correct, the future of the solar energy industry may be more unstable than it is even now. This actually causes me to worry about the entire renewable energy industry – will the backlash against solar spread into wind and other eco-friendly energy sectors?
