I posted, way back shortly after starting this blog, about a company called Clarian Power, which was attempting to produce less expensive, “plug n play,” solar and wind power systems for the average consumer. Their products were decidedly interesting and I’d been keeping an eye on them for a while. They were hoping to have product on the market by the end of this year.
So, today, with all the news about “green power” companies going under I decided to hit Clarian’s website to see if there’d been any updates. Except the website has changed. The link now auto redirects to www.clarianlabs.com which doesn’t have any information on it except a “contact us” button. I can get around that new front page by typing in www.clarianpower.com/solar.html and see the originial website, but there’ve been no updates. Well, that’s not cool, but hey, I was following their Facebook site, and now that I think about it there haven’t been any updates from that for a while either, but lets go check. Except there’s no Facebook site any more either. Under either the Clarian Power name, or the Clarian Labs name, and its not listed as a page I’m following any more.
Well f*ck. Hit Google, nothing really comes up there either. Links to past articles about the solar and wind projects, an article about a “new” project (dated a few months ago), and thats it. Nothing about this being one of the companies thats closing, nothing. So I don’t KNOW that something bad has happened to them, but the lack of anything anywhere is not promising!
