Crony Chicago Politics
Despite all that, just yesterday the Department of Energy approved $1 billion in new loans to green energy companies -- including a $737 million loan guarantee to a company known as SolarReserve.
SolarReserve LLC, a closely held renewable energy developer, received a $737 million U.S. Energy Department loan guarantee to build a solar-thermal project in Nevada.
The 110-megawatt Crescent Dunes project, near Tonopah, Nevada, will use the sun’s heat to create steam that drives a turbine, the agency said today in a e-mailed statement. SolarReserve is based in Santa Monica, California.

And as far as my friends in Liberty Park - If you think Congress is going to start-up some trials to put their fraternity brothers in jail, you need to put down the pipe for a minute and think about occupying the Imagination Playground four blocks east.
Start with Congress. Make them accountable.
