Solar firm that’s closing, laying off 250, got $1M-plus in state training funds

StateImpact Idaho reports that Transform Solar, the Nampa-based solar company partly owned by Micron Technology that plans to shut down and lay off 250 people, received a $3.6 million workforce development training grant from the state of Idaho in 2010, and has been reimbursed for a little over $1 million in training costs through the grant. StateImpact reports that the Idaho Department of Labor says when a company gets workforce training money and then closes, the hope is that those employees at least will have new skills that will help them in their next job; you can read their full report here.
