Do Republicans know there are Thousands of newly employed Americans in Arizona because of Obama?
Do they know that the solar plants that were funded by the Obama's stimulus have made it a priority to only buy American made parts? I'm asking this because they never seem to mention it, not even here in Arizona. ===================== President Obama gives the go-ahead for one of the world’s largest concentratingsolar power projects. Abengoa's 280 megawatt Solana Concentrated Solar Power Project (CSP) is now backed by the $1.45 billion loan guarantee in sunny Gila Bend, Arizona. Abengoa Solar’s Arizona Vice President Kate Maracas stated in the press release that “the building of Solana will also create between 1,600 to 1,700 new construction jobs, and operation of the plant will add another 85 permanent jobs. These construction and operating jobs will create a few thousand additional indirect jobs. Taken together,98 percent of the jobs created by Solana will be American jobs -- primarily from Arizona, and a smaller portion from neighboring states.” Abengoa Solar signed a power purchase agreement with APS, the state’s largest electric utility, to sell the energy produced by Solana for a period of 30 years. Abengoa Solar has made it a priority to utilize U.S.-made components wherever possible for the Solana plant. More than 75 percent of the equipment and supplies required to build Solana will be manufactured in the U.S. This includes steam generators, heat exchangers, power equipment, glass, steel, concrete and other construction materials.

Go look at that companies financials, they won't survive that contract. Cost are way to high to produce affordable electricity. For those that are thumbing down I seriously doubt you can even read a financial statement.

no i didnt know that. everything i know of it comes from this post. it sounds like a projection not fact. if solar power was a viable business plan, why would there be any need for government money? have they profited a dollar? sounds like another government money pit to me.
