On August 5, DoE announced it had finalized a $967 million loan guarantee to support the construction of the Agua Caliente Solar Project, a 290-megawatt photovoltaic solar energy-generating facility to be constructed in Yuma County, Ariz. The project, which will use thin-film solar panels manufactured by First Solar Inc., and will likely be completed in 2013. NRG Solar LLC, the project's sponsor, estimates the facility will fund approximately 400 construction jobs and 10 full-time operating jobs.
