GE has halted the build-out of a Colorado thin-film solar plant it announced last October for 18 months, and is reportedly laying off employees. GE had promised to invest $600M in the plant, meant to represent its return as a major solar manufacturer, but bleak industry conditions apparently made the company delay its plans. The halt is a positive for thin-film rival First Solar (FSLR), which has had an ugly 2012.
