In the news: Students’ Solyndra case study cited by Washington Post

A 2012 bankruptcy case study of solar technology company Solyndra created by UT Law students was recently cited by The Washington Post.

The article, which covers the findings of a newly released federal investigative report, features the students’ conclusion that Solyndra’s legacy should serve as a cautionary tale.

“Solyndra started out as green tech’s poster child, showing how government and green entrepreneurs could team up to create clean energy, blue collared jobs, and a healthy new industry,” reads the study. “Instead, Solyndra will likely be remembered as a cautionary tale of how taxpayer dollars were wasted when the government made financial investments based on political considerations.”
