In recent news, Obama announced in his weekly address that the Department of Energy has awarded two solar companies with nearly $2 billion as part of the Recovery Act. These companies are Abengoa Solar and Abound Solar Manufacturing.
As Obama explained, “These are just two of the many clean energy investments in the Recovery Act. Already, I’ve seen the payoff from these investments. I’ve seen once-shuttered factories humming with new workers who are building solar panels and wind turbines; rolling up their sleeves to help America win the race for the clean energy economy.”
