AIR DATE: October 7, 2011

The recent bankruptcy of the government-backed solar company, Solyndra, drew fire from Congress and put funding for other solar projects on shaky ground.  Now, a geothermal plant in northern Nevada might follow suit.  Nevada Geothermal Power is fighting off debt, and its own auditor said there was "significant doubt" on whether the company would continue.  Will Nevada Geothermal go the way of Solyndra?  And what does that mean for future energy projects here in Nevada?  New York Times reporter Eric Lipton gives us an update.

I guess this is a sign of the "times" that no local print journalist was tapped for this segment. R.I.P. local newspapers. Thanks for showing the local focus KNPR.
