LAS VEGAS (KXNT Newsradio) – Clark County commissioners have unanimously approved a land sale to a Chinese energy firm for a massive solar power plant. Under the deal, ENN Mojave Energy will pay $4.5 million for nine-thousand acres near Laughlin to build a solar energy facility. The county is selling the land well below appraisal, but ENN will return the parcel if it does not build the plant. The project is expected to create some 2,900 construction jobs and more than 2,200 permanent jobs once it’s completed.
