Calpine or other power plant producer might be interested in Sunpower. PG&E, SCE are required, regulated to buy AE. Other states have similar policies or will follow their footsteps.
BP, Exxon- Mobole, Chevron, Philip-Conaco have spend R&D money on AE. They can easily acquire SunPower for political correctness and getting the Fed off their back. If they move too late, SunPower will be much more expensive after it goes IPO again.
This co. Has a lot of unrealized potential like oil under sand. It's time to unlock it to return value to shareholders by shopping the co. as Palm has done.
