This project is one of the projects, everybody is expecting from the US. The US must be a sample for the world, not as number one oil consumer, but as number one renewable energy producer/consumer. Therefore I can only congratulate everybody, who have played a (positive) role in this project.
It has to be kept in mind, that renewable energy is creating jobs not only by the sector alone. For example I am preferring goods from Germany, since I know that these are produced with more renewable energy. Additional to the labour created by the renewable energy sector, my way of thinking will also create jobs and I think one of the reasons Germany is such a good export country is that I am not the only one...

Where is C City going to get the other 4 million required to do this project? Are there other less expensive alternatives?
