Perhaps an alternate headline could be “President Obama preps Africa for arrival of numerous Chevy Volt dealerships”:
The stated goal is to expand the reach of power grids and to develop wind, geothermal, hydro and solar power, and some tweeters know what that could mean: Sub Saharan Solyndra, here we come!
Obama talking about electricity for S Africa–he's caliing in Solyndra to save the day—

Tweeters offered other thoughts:
If the Obama administration’s energy plan for Africa is anything like it is for the United States, more people in sub Saharan Africa may end up with greater access to power, but they won’t be able to afford it … necessarily.
Speaking of laying out billions, whatever happened to the sequester?
