LAS VEGAS As U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid prepares to host his fifth annual National Clean Energy Summit on Aug. 7, a Nevada Journal examination of Nevadas renewable energy sector shows that over $1.3 billion in federal funds funneled into geothermal, solar and wind projects since 2009 has yielded and is projected to yield just 288 permanent, full-time jobs.
Thats an initial cost of over $4.6 million per job.
Despite this, Sen. Reid continues to hype Nevada as the Saudi Arabia of renewable energy, even though the renewable energy subsidized with federal dollars and mandated under Nevadas Renewable Portfolio Standard costs consumers and NV Energy, Nevadas publicly regulated utility company, up to four times as much as fossil fuels, such as natural gas.

I guarantee you 100% of these companies made substantial, multimillion dollar political donations to Rats using company funds.
What's also confusing is the report constantly states that a company 'received, or is eligible for...'. So it leaves unclear whether the company took all the money (some of which are only loan guarantees. Possibly not all the companies have taken their full 'allotment' of available money (yet), especially the ones with only two, or five, FT employees (the report leaves out how many PT employees are there, if any).
Still, I'd like to see where the money is going. What do I need, an FOIA request?

My sources tell me that he is waist deep in mob activity.
