NEW YORK (Reuters) - The California Energy Commission's staff on Friday recommended approval for Spanish multinational Abengoa SA's proposed 250-megawatt Mojave solar thermal power plant in southeast California.

The Commission did not say in its release how much the Mojave plant would cost.

However, as part of the federal government's effort to create clean energy jobs and reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to combat global warming, the U.S. Department of Energy in July conditionally offered Abengoa about $1.45 billion in federal loan guarantees for another proposed 250-MW solar plant, Solana in New Mexico.
