    What does BEING DONE mean?

    But the rapid rise of low-cost Chinese manufacturers has made investors — who once envisioned the region’s future as Solar Valley — skittish about backing new capital-intensive start-ups.
    “I don’t see another Solyndra being done,” said Anup Jacob, whose private equity firm, Virgin Green Fund, has invested significantly in Solyndra. ---taken from the NYT

    "Done" is used here in the sense of "effectuated".

    All the sentence really means is that the area in question is not going to produce another result similar to that of Solyndra.
