This is your SolarWakeup for June 4th, 2013
A day after the USA Today piece on DOE loan guarantees, comes a great look at the man behind the Obama administration loan guarantees. Fortune writer, Dan Primack, interviews Jonathan Silver who led the loan guarantee program for several years.

Also of interest is the continued theme on MLPs and REITs.
