US DoE Solar Projects

The United States Department of Energy has announced that it will be offering the Abengoa Mojave Solar project outside Hinkley a conditional $1.2 billion federal loan. Once it is completed and fully operational, the 1,765-acre, 250 megawatt project will power up to 80,000 homes once it is completed. The project is designed to use parabolic solar trough technology, which tracks the sun and allows for storage.
