Washington, D.C. - May 20, 2011 - (RealEstateRama) -- Congresswoman Shelley Berkley today welcomed an announcement that a conditional loan guarantee has been awarded to the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project in Nevada. The facility will create new clean energy jobs in the Silver State and boost the supply of renewable energy needed to power local homes and businesses."This is a smart investment that will create new Nevada jobs and increase our supply of clean renewable energy. That is why I fought Republican efforts to cut the loans for renewable energy projects like this new solar plant near Tonopah. Nevada's future is in clean energy and we can create jobs and strengthen our economy by investing in the development of more solar, wind, geothermal and other sources of renewable power found in abundance right here at home in the Silver State," said Berkley.
