BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) -- President Barack Obama says that as long as he is in the White House, the U.S. will continue to pursue the promise of clean energy.

Speaking at a solar power facility, Obama says he will not stand by and let countries like China or Germany corner the market on new energy technologies. He says clean energy will not only reduce America's dependence on foreign oil, it also will create jobs in the U.S.

Obama mocked Republicans for having a lack of imagination and dismissing clean energy technologies just because they are new. The president says America must take risks and stay ahead of the curve in order to be competitive.
