For people having a hard time keeping track of all the taxpayer-funded “green energy” companies that are teetering on the edge of bankruptcy or that have already gone bankrupt, the Heritage Foundation has the resource you need. 

Heritage lists 34 failed and failing companies that have received “green energy” subsidies under the Obama administration. In addition to listing the companies, Heritage provides a link to news articles describing the failures of each company.

Cumulatively, the 34 companies extracted approximately $7 billion from U.S. taxpayers. Broken down among America’s 100 million households, the handouts to failed "green energy" companies equate to $70 extracted from each U.S. household.
