Not so sunny in Colorado for GE solar plant

Bloomberg and other outlets are reporting GE has halted the building of its $300 million solar panel plant in Colorado on concerns that prices for the technology have fallen.

Still no word, however, how solar panels will be disposed of or recycled. Many panels contain materials that, to say it in PR speak, are challenging. Also, some experiences with solar have shown that the panels’ efficiency drops over time.

Here’s the link to the Bloomberg story:
