DoE LOANS CONTROVERSY: My Dad is the COO for One of the Recipient Companies
It's been about about a year and a half since my Dad took his place as a senior executive: COO- Chief Operations Officer, for one of the "green"
energy companies that received government/DoE loans-
Specifically, solar energy.
*For privacy reasons- for him/our family, along with potential legal issues- I won't/can't disclose which company*
I will say, however, that his company is among the top of the list in terms of the loan amount.
So far, the company has been right on track with their projections/goals on all fronts (production, expansion, etc), and is on the brink of sealing
some very large, lucrative deals, both domestically and abroad.
Once the Solyndra story broke, well, you can probably guess I was a little concerned (to say the least).
But, he continues to be very confident and believes passionately in this company.
(He has been working in high-level management for 35 years, primarily in the chemical/energy field, with a degree in Chemical Engineering and a Six
Sigma Master Black Belt)
The most important thing about him, though, in my opinion- is his commitment to integrity.
He will stand up for what is right, what he believes in, no matter the consequence.
He's proven himself time and time again.
i.e. Walking away from a million dollar/year job in a company he was with for 20 years because of their shady business practices,
turning down and even disclosing/blowing the whistle about "bribes" in the form of bonuses/stock-options/etc to keep quiet or to do the dirty work of
the higher ups,
and many more on a smaller scale.
The point is- He cannot be bought off.
He's not afraid to stand up against the Elite.
He is a man fighting the good fight.
He is trustworthy and genuinely loves/cares about his fellow man.
So- regarding this current company,
I'm confident that he will not stand for any kind of shady business.
My main purpose for this thread is discussion regarding solar energy and communication- to give ATS a line of communication to the execs of a DOE loan
If you could tell my dad and the rest of the C-suite/Board of Directors something- what would it be?
What are your ideas/beliefs about solar energy, its future, and the role of America in its development?
Looking forward to hearing what y'all have to say!!
Peace & Love
