Solyndra wasn’t enough looting, comrade.
Despite the growing Solyndra scandal, 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.”
But wait… there’s more! One of SolarReserve’s other investment partners is Argonaut Private Equity [famous for their “investment” in Solyndra…]
You just can’t make this stuff up. Truth is stranger than fiction because it’s real.
