    Nearly $13 million was funded under the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to provide short-term, low-cost loans to developers of renewable energy projects, renewable component manufacturers, energy efficiency, and energy conservation projects in Nevada. These loans serve as a bridge financing option to provide funding for various startup costs associated with these projects.
