San Luis Obispo, CA Here is a 9 minute video news blog featuring International Scholar Alex Alexiev who exposes yet another huge environmental energy scandal where a $1.2 Billion U S loan guarantee that was given to the California Valley Solar Ranch in San Luis Obispo County that will provide only 12 permanent low level-jobs in San Luis Obispo County while Pacific Gas & Electric has a long-term contract with CVSR for solar energy at a fifty percent over market rate, that will undoubtedly be passed on to the consumers, businesses and industries in the area.
