Solyndra has filed its plan for repaying its creditors.

The Fremont-based solar panel maker defaulted on a half-billion dollar federal loan last September and declared bankruptcy. It triggered an FBI investigation and sharp criticism of the White House for approving the loan.

The Chapter 11 filing will place Solyndra's assets in a trust fund that will oversee their distribution.
