The World's Largest Renewable Energy Developer Could Go Broke

Ben Walsh for The Huffington Post:  There is a “substantial risk” that SunEdison may file for bankruptcy, the world’s largest renewable energy developer said in a regulatory filing on Tuesday. The company’s fall isn’t a referendum on the solar industry as a whole, as much as it is on SunEdison’s aggressive growth strategy fueled by excessive debt and financial engineering, analysts say.

SunEdison “just thought they were smarter than everyone else,” said David Levine, the founder and CEO of Geostellar,  a solar energy marketplace that has done deals with the company.

The company’s shares have fallen steeply since they hit a high of $30 in July. They were at just $1.26 before the filing. The stock immediately dropped another 40 percent when the market opened after the filing, and the company was trading at just $0.59 by Tuesday lunchtime.

“What happened from late-2014 to the middle of 2015, the company began embarking on a hyper-growth strategy,” S&P analyst Angelo Zino told The Huffington Post.  Cont'd...

PVinsights: Inventory correction escalate solar price drops on cell and module

Multi-crystalline cell price plummet this week as inventory adjustment makes the demand weaker. Due to high inventory level, major multi-crystalline cell buyers cut their purchasing order much higher than expected. Hence, multi-crystalline cell makers intend to leverage the aggressive price reductions to reduce their piled-up inventory levels by the deadline of the first fiscal quarter. Moreover, with high production utilization rate, the increasing inventory in March, and the decreasing procurement volume for April, oversupply situation leads multi-crystalline price tumbles more dramatically this week.
