Former Evergreen Solar CEO Richard Feldts five-bedroom, two-plus acre Hingham pad is on the market for $9.9 million, nearly $1.4 million more than what the companys Devens factory sold for earlier this year.
The Bare Cove Lane property also boasts four bathrooms, a pool, stone terrace and 200 feet of frontage on Hingham Harbor, according to a real estate listing.
The natural light is incredible. The views are spectacular. The finishes and millwork are masterful, the listing says. Rarely does a home of this caliber become available for sale.
Feldt, who left Evergreen Solar in 2010 to become CEO of Wilmington-based electron emitter equipment maker Advanced Electron Beams Inc., purchased the home in 2006 for $4 million, according to property records.
Evergreens 450,000-square-foot factory in Devens was sold in March for $8.53 million. Marlboro-based Evergreen went bankrupt in August, five months after shutting down the Devens plant and wiping out more than 800 jobs
Gee, I never got a chance to use my pool! Rats!
Another taxpayer-funded Fisker Karma “green” car caught fire during testing.
It’s a bit out of my price range, and I don’t really want to move to Taxachusetts anyway. But here’s the real estate description and photo:

I’m wondering if solar panel production in the US has increased or decreased since Obama was elected. 800 jobs is a lot of capacity. I’m not finding a good chart that is up to date.
I wouldn’t be surprised if American production is stagnant or declining.
A “manse” is the official, church-owned residence of a Presbyterian minister and his family (or her family, these days). A “mansion” is a big, fancy, expensive house, of a certain kind ... sort of a “you know one if you see one” thing.
Maybe the state can buy it and move some illegal immigrants in there ... perhaps Zero’s poor auntie, for example.
I wonder how many of their workers' wifes were dianosed with cancer after they lost their jobs.
wifes s/b wives
Maybe it’s my eyes, but I can’t see a single solar panel anywhere in the pictures of the house....
