Question of the Day
Feds OK large California solar project
The Obama administration is set to announce approval of a 1,000-megawatt solar project on federal land in Southern California, the largest in a series of solar projects given the go-ahead in recent weeks.
The Interior Department has approved a permit for what will be the world’s biggest solar-power plant, on federal land in the desert near Blythe, Calif., 225 miles east of Los Angeles, according to Obama administration officials speaking on the condition of anonymity because the announcement had not been made.
The $6 billion project is being developed by Solar Millennium, a German solar developer. At peak output, the solar farm could generate enough clean electricity to power more than 300,000 homes, according to project developers.
O’Donnell touts du Pont backing
WILMINGTON | Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell is touting an endorsement from former Delaware governor and GOP presidential candidate Pete du Pont.
Ms. O’Donnell said in Twitter and Facebook announcements Monday that she is “honored and humbled” to receive the endorsement of Mr. du Pont, who wrote a Wall Street Journal column last week pointing out the differences between her and her Democratic rival, New Castle County Executive Chris Coons.
While there was no formal event to announce the endorsement, Mr. du Pont said Monday that anyone who reads the Journal article can figure out who would win the Senate race if he had his way.
Mr. du Pont says he agrees with Ms. O’Donnell’s positions on most things, and that she has a chance of beating Mr. Coons, which would bring the Senate one vote closer to a GOP majority.
Postmaster general to retire in December
John E. Potter, one of the nation’s longest-serving postmasters general, announced Monday that he will retire in December.
Patrick R. Donahoe, currently deputy postmaster general, was named to succeed him by the post office’s board of governors.
