BP Solar, which has roots going back decades to the early days of solar panel manufacturing, can't compete in a difficult solar panel market, so it's closing its doors, according to reports. It joins a number of other solar manufacturers, including famously the U.S. government-backed Solyndra, that have failed during difficult times for the solar industry.
