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!

@FinanceTX hubris to tell a continent 17% w/ electricity "we will help you with Green energy". Like "no to steak pick lamb" to starving:

If the Obama administration‚Äôs 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‚Äôt be able to afford it ‚Ä¶ necessarily.
Speaking of laying out billions, whatever happened to the sequester?
