California Solar Generation Project

Posted in Agency News, Recovery Projects/Awards by on April 19, 2011

Earlier this week, the Department of Energy (DOE) announced an offer of a conditional commitment for a $1.187 billion loan guarantee to support construction of a new, large-scale solar facility in California. According to DOE, the project is expected to create over 350 jobs and produce enough energy to power 60,000 homes. Visit the Energy Blog to read more about the project.

    It is so heartening to see so much money invested in sustainable energy. I guess 60,000 homes isn’t a great deal in the global scheme of things but it’s a whole lot better than none. If all governments made the same contribution it sure would add up to something significant for our planet.

    We in California appreciate any constructive assistance in developing alternatives like solar, wind, desalination, etc. It would create a more dynamic and competitive economy.
