Las Vegas has moved on to 100% renewable energy for which they have spent the better part of a decade. The city partnered with NVEnergy the past year to run government buildings, community center lights, parks, and the city hall.
The city met its goal after Bouldar Solar 1 went online, a large scale project near Bouldar City. The city is powering more than 100 facilities with renewable energy. Along with solar energy the city will also tap into the Hoover Damn by the end of 2017.
Las Vegas began in 2008 with sustainable energy programs that implemented solar array installations and energy saving measures. The city’s energy savings from renewable sources is estimated at roughly $5 million annually.
