Last week, Las Vegas reached its decade-long goal of completely powering the city with renewable energy, making it the largest city in the United States to do so.
“Las Vegas is one of the few cities in the entire world that can boast using all of its power from green sources,” Mayor Carolyn Goodman told reporters at city hall last Monday.
The city reached the goal thanks to the opening of Boulder Solar 1, a 100-megawatt solar plant located near Boulder City. Now, the city’s government buildings, streetlights, and parks are fueled the renewable energy.
Apparently the city has been working toward this goal since 2008, and have now reduced energy emissions by 30%.
And this Sarah Palin is why we do not need to spend billions on oil exploration in the Arctic.
Thank you President Obama.
