Well, this is a great day to be here, I must say, because it’s probably been said many times, but it really is true that this is looking at our future in terms of the science and engineering contributors of the next decades.

But anyway, so thank you, Pat (Dehmer). And also let me thank all the people who really made this happen: the Office of Science staff; I know many volunteers; of course the coaches, for their guidance; and most importantly, of course, the competitors. And so I think you all deserve a great amount of thanks for coming here.

Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz Remarks at Vogtle Electric Generating Plant Loan Guarantee Announcement in Waynesboro, GA – As Delivered

Well, thank you, Tom [Fanning] and Paul [Bowers], and Buzz [Miller] as well.  It’s really been a great day down here.  And I’ll say more about that, but right off, it’s great to come down from Washington, down here to Georgia, and see real big stuff going on. 

I’ll say a little bit about another loan guarantee-supported project, last week we were out in the Mojave Desert with a huge solar thermal plant: a very, very different technology.  But you look at it and you see energy is big and this is what it takes to supply those services that Tom was just talking about.
