WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republicans in the House of Representatives on Wednesday threatened to subpoena five White House aides in their investigation of Solyndra LLC, the failed solar panel maker that received more than $500 million in federal loan guarantees.

House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton and Cliff Stearns, the lawmaker who has led the probe, said the committee would vote on Friday to subpoena the staffers unless the White House makes them available to testify.

They are Kevin Carroll, Kelly Colyar and Fouad Saad of the Office of Management and Budget, Heather Zichal, a top White House energy official, and Aditya Kumar, who worked for former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and now works for Vice President Joe Biden.
