FILE - In this July 9, 2007 file photo hands push a red button for the symbolic start of a solar plant of the US company First Solar in Frankfurt/Oder, eastern Germany. First Solar Inc. says it's shuttering its manufacturing operations at Frankfurt an der Oder in Germany due to deteriorating market conditions in Europe and to reduce costs. The Tempe, Arizona-based company said Tuesday, April 17, 2012 it will also indefinitely idle four production lines in Malaysia. (AP Photo/dapd, Michael Urban, File) less
