President Barack Obama will travel to Las Vegas, Nevada, later on Monday to unveil the new steps, which include an additional $1 billion in loan guarantees for new research projects and near-term savings for homeowners using renewable energy. The Department of Interior on Monday approved the Blyth Mesa Solar project in California and its transmission line, expected to bring enough solar energy to power 145,000 homes.
