IMAGE DISTRIBUTED FOR SOLARRESERVE - In this infographic released on Friday, September 14, 2012, The Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project is a 110 MW solar plant that will supply enough clean, reliable electricity to power 75,000 homes, day or night, by utilizing advanced energy storage technology. Financing for the project included a $737 million Department of Energy loan guarantee to build the facility that is currently under construction in Tonopah, Nev. This infographic illustrates just what this loan translates into in terms of jobs, energy, and economic and environmental benefits. The project was well suited for the Loan Guarantee Program, which was designed to support the deployment of innovative technologies like SolarReserve’s solar thermal power technology with energy storage. The loan program has been extremely successful – 98 percent of the program funding remains within active projects. Additionally, the loan is required to be paid back in full with interest, which will bring an estimated $300 million of additional revenue to the U.S. government. (SolarReserve via AP Images)
