CNBC reported this week that “the U.S. Department of Energy wants the public to know that its $30 billion program to support alternative energy projects is alive and well—and there’s more than just solar and wind power in the mix.”  

“Think nuclear power.”  

“In an interview with CNBC, U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz declared the contentious green technology loan program “open for business.” As memories of the 2011 political scandal around solar panel maker Solyndra fade, Moniz touted a portfolio of more than 30 projects that he said are creating a blueprint for successful renewable energy funding.”
