With all due respect to Flo Rida, Steven Chu and the DOE are second to none when it comes to making it snow (the green stuff) this year, and he is doing it where they know a lot about snow: Golden Colorado and the National Renewable Energy Lab. Expect something big, not only because the DOE is billing this as a “major announcement on new funding,” but also because the agency notes that “the visit comes as President Obama marks his 100th day in office.”
The funding will be flowing from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. It’s unclear if Obama, himself will be there, but Colorado Governor Bill Ritter will be beside Secretary Chu. Look for the details around 12:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
