A major milestone has been reached with the construction of the Hinkle light-emitting diode (LED) plant, the first of its kind in the United States.
The plant is scheduled to be operational in 2020, but will need to operate through 2022 before the federal government decides whether to approve its use.
Here are the key points: The project was announced in late 2016 by the Energy Department.
But the Obama administration delayed a decision on the project until early 2019.
The Obama administration has approved several energy-efficiency standards and other improvements.
But construction of Hinkleys first phase will be more complex than other nuclear power plants because the plant will be built in three phases: The first phase involves building a power plant on a large site at the edge of the Mojave Desert, about 150 miles (230 kilometers) from Los Angeles, California.
The second phase is a smaller, site at a site at San Luis Obispo, about 40 miles (64 kilometers) away.
The third phase is the largest phase, at the plant site in Nevada.
This is the new phase, which will include a site about 30 miles (48 kilometers) southwest of Las Vegas.
In late December, the Department of Energy announced a $1.3 billion federal loan guarantee to help pay for the construction.
Construction of the second phase will begin next year.
The DOE has already spent $1 billion on the first phase of the plant, and it has promised another $2 billion for the third phase, but officials said they are still working out how to finance the construction and maintain it for the remaining time.
A DOE spokesperson declined to say how much the company has paid in loan guarantees.
The federal government has agreed to buy 10 percent of the shares of the company that holds the company’s stock.
The loan guarantee gives the company a guarantee of up to $10 billion to build and operate the plant.
The project will require significant infrastructure upgrades and improvements.
Some of the upgrades will include the building of two new nuclear power plant reactors at Hinkys Point, which are already in operation.
The first reactor will be operational by 2021.
It will be the first nuclear plant built in the country that has never been built in another country, which is a first for the U.S. But it will also be the largest nuclear power reactor ever built in America.
The new reactor, which has a capacity of about 1,300 megawatts (MW), will be used for generating electricity to heat and cool the plant’s nuclear fuel rods, which make up the bulk of the nuclear fuel.
The reactor will also provide fuel for the new plant’s six water-cooled nuclear reactors.
The company said it expects to pay back the loan guarantees within six months.
A federal agency announced in June that it had awarded $4.2 billion in loan guarantee money to help finance the project.
The Department of Interior announced a similar loan guarantee in January for another $4 billion.
The money will be paid out over 20 years.
The deal was hailed as a major step forward for the project, which was first proposed by President Donald Trump.
But critics questioned whether the Trump administration would be able to secure federal financial support for the plant and whether the DOE would be willing to spend more money than it has already agreed to.
The Trump administration has pledged to complete the construction by 2026, but it could be several more years before the plant is fully operational.
Trump said he would like to see the plant operating by 2035.
