FBI questions execs of bankrupt solar company
FREMONT, Calif. (AP) — Federal agents visited the homes of three executives of California solar panel manufacturer Solyndra on the same day the company was raided.
Solyndra spokesman David Miller says agents questioned company CEO Brian Harrison on Thursday, in addition to company co-founder and head of marketing Kelly Truman, and former CEO Chris Gronet.
The raid and questioning is part of an investigation with the Department of Energy's Office of Inspector General.
The DOE granted Solyndra more than $500 million in federal loans before the solar panel maker filed for bankruptcy last week. President Barack Obama once touted the company as a beneficiary of economic stimulus
The loans have also been the subject of a probe by the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
