BOSTON — A solar panel company that received $58 million in state aid to build its factory in Massachusetts is now moving jobs overseas.
Evergreen Solar is shifting some of its production, currently done at a plant in Devens, to China next year, after posting an $82 million loss in the third quarter.
Gov. Deval Patrick calls the move unfortunate, but says some of Evergreen’s operations will remain here.

“I’m disappointed about the manufacturing,” Patrick said, “but I’m delighted that they will continue to grow jobs in Massachusetts and they will be a part of our emerging clean tech sector.”
Oh yeah, it's "emerging" all right. It's emerging in China, you idiot!
"Deval Patrick. Massachusetts governor. Obama crony. Moron."
