Solyndra executives sought to “increase U.S. government installation deployment of U.S.-made solar panels,” according to the e-mail from Fish.
$187,000 for Lobbying
The Fremont, California-based solar-panel maker paid McAllister & Quinn more than $187,000 in 2010 and 2011 to lobby on its behalf, according to Senate records.
On July 6, a report in Greenwire, an online news outlet that covers the environment, said the company was hemorrhaging cash.
Solyndra spokesman David Miller called the report “total crap,” in a July 6 e-mail to Gregory Nelson, deputy director of the White House office of public engagement, according to the batch of documents, which the White House also released to the press.
