Can President Obama Name ONE Clean Energy Success?

Heritage Action for America.   Gross, sickening part:

For those who only hear about these failing companies one by one, the following is a list of all the clean energy companies supported by President Obama’s stimulus that are now failing or have filed for bankruptcy. The liberal media hopes you’ve forgotten about all of them except Solyndra, but we haven’t.

  • Evergreen Solar
  • SpectraWatt
  • Solyndra (received $535 million)
  • Beacon Power (received $43 million)
  • AES’ subsidiary Eastern Energy
  • Nevada Geothermal (received $98.5 million)
  • SunPower (received $1.5 billion)
  • First Solar (received $1.46 billion)
  •  Babcock & Brown (an Australian company which received $178 million)
  • Ener1 (subsidiary EnerDel received $118.5 million)
  • Amonix (received 5.9 million)
  • The National Renewable Energy Lab
  • Fisker Automotive
  • Abound Solar (received $400 million)
  • Chevy Volt (taxpayers basically own GM)
  • Solar Trust of America
  • A123 Systems (received $279 million)
  • Willard & Kelsey Solar Group (received $6 million)
  • Johnson Controls (received $299 million)
  • Schneider Electric (received $86 million)

That’s 19 (that we know of so far). We also know that loans went to foreign clean energy companies (Fisker sent money to their overseas plant to develop an electric car), and that 80% of these loans went to President Obama’s campaign donors.

The only thing green about these ‘Clean Energy’ initiatives is the dirty money of political payback.

    I think I read (granted, it was a long time ago!) that many of the GM & Chrysler dealerships that were closed down by the “reorganization” with the government stimulus funds were owned by people who contributed to the Repubs and not the dems. That 80% of the recipients of green loans donated to the Obama campaign is not a big surprise, unfortunately.

  2. Your memory serves you well.

  3. […] companies receiving federal stimulus dollars had gone belly up. Not long thereafter she linked this blog post which alerts us to the 22 “clean energy companies supported by President Obama’s stimulus […]

  4. You forgot to mention that Romney has invested in those companies too.
