“I applaud the California Energy Commission’s decision to approve the construction of the Abengoa Mojave Solar Project. California needs to do all it can to create more jobs. Solar technology and clean energy are an integral part of California’s economic future and I am proud that our state is leading the way in attracting employers like Abengoa. Protecting the environment and improving the economy go hand in hand, and I hope even more businesses will continue to build solar plants in California.”
