Good news! This green fraud story is not about solar energy or government investments. No cronyism. Just good-ole' fashioned fraud while posing as an environmentalist.
California's Water Resources Control Board sued Hayden Environmental for fraud. It seems the company and owners filed at least 207 invoices in which some overcharged or may have been fraudulent. The company had received $12 million from the Barry Keene Underground Storage Tank Cleanup Trust Fund. It is not known what percent was fraudulent.
Again, I find this refreshing. Straight out fraud. No one in government slushing money their way under the banner of investment. Not a bailout. Not money for nothing. They did some work and worked the paperwork to get a little more.
A good-ole' dishonest bilking.
