Skip to comments.HARRY REID'S SON REPRESENTING CHINESE SOLAR PANEL PLANT IN $5 BILLION NEVADA DEAL
Posted on 04/11/2014 2:09:28 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
The son of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Rory Reid, is the primary representative for ENN Energy Group, a Chinese energy company seeking to build a $5 billion solar panel plant on a 9,000-acre Clark County desert plot in Laughlin, Nevada.
ENN scored big when Clark County commissioners unanimously voted to sell the Chinese company the public land for just $4.5 million, despite the fact that it was appraised at $38.6 million.
Sen. Reid has been one of ENNs biggest supporters, having recruited the company during a 2011 trip to China. According to Reuters, last month Sen. Reid tried to pressure Nevada's largest power company, NV Energy, to sign up as ENN's first customer.
Both Rory Reid and Harry Reid deny having ever discussed the $5 billion Chinese solar panel plant deal:
"I have never discussed the project with my father or his staff," said Rory Reid. Kristen Orthman, a spokeswoman for the senator, said he had not discussed the project with his son.
This isnt the first time the Reids have come under fire for alleged cronyism. In 2003, allegations emerged that Nevada industries frequently lobbied Sen. Reid through his well-connected relatives.

I’m confused. I see that Reid is involved in the solar farm project, but that’s down in Laughlin. Isn’t this Bundy ranch in a different part of the state, or is there a proposed solar plant for there too?
hey... the Chinese are just building the solar panels Americans dont want to build.
I’ve been trying to get someone to show me the connection.
I’m suspicious when someone shouts fire in a theater. Is there one? Do I smell smoke? Do I see any flames?
I’m guessing there’s no connection. Reid’s about making money for he and his family, and this ranch thing is about the Feds wanting to make a point... that’s coming from someone’s ego (someone in D.C. probably).
My husband and I were stationed at NAS Fallon. Is that far from this place?
Strangely enough, I was in a theater last year watching Hotel Transylvania. Frankenstein had just finished saying "Fire Bad!!". When this extemely polite female voice came on the speakers saying, "An emergency has been reported. Please make your way to the exits."
Turns out there really was a fire in the theater. Fire trucks showed up. Said it would be several hours before they resumed operation. But it was the politeness of the message that has stayed with me. They don't want to start a panic there.
Welcome to medieval rule and plunder. This is just another epic scandal from the group that doesn’t give a care about our rights or any US laws for that matter.
As someone who is from Kingman posted, right across the Colorado from Laughlin, the deal is dead. If that is the case, then they need another place to make the deal happen for the Reid’s. But that is not to say there is yet another project we have yet to hear about.
Face value just does not work with henchmen. I would have thought that over time lurking here on FR that most would understand this simple fact.
I wonder if in some way, this may be something fueling the problems the cattle rancher is having with the Feds there in Nevada???
The Feds seems to want to have another Waco, or Ruby Ridge to pad their accomplishments...
The Feds could very well difuse this situation by backing down and taking care of this through the courts...Too many armed people on both sides...
“One sneeze, or blink, and some people are going to get hurt or killed...And for what???”
(That’s a rhetorical comment)
Do you want the scary answer???
Seems to be a common conclusion on a couple of fronts (ideas) here in this thread...
I hope the “militia’s” and ranchers are smart...You do not go head to head with the redcoats...
I figure you might be watching this...
I wholeheartedly agree.
This is the thread that took off when we started looking into the land issue.
Lots of good info.

Biden is another influence peddler. He lives on a huge spread in Delaware, but has held no job other than in politics. No business history.
Both of his sons are in the lobbying business. Are they just talented? Or are they peddling his influence? The easy conclusion is to follow the money.
...it turns out the wild horse roundup story in Iron County, UT gets a little deeper:
And another project recently approved by the Iron County Commission could make the use of solar energy even more a part of life in Southern Utah than before.
The commission on Monday approved a solar project planned by SunEdison west of Cedar City along state Route 56.
