How did it happen that Las Vegas is the largest U.S. city to run entirely on renewable energy? Because it’s good business. Renewable energy generates energy cost savings, as well as lucrative business opportunities.
In fact, renewable energy is a global business trend. Soon, even American climate deniers will jump aboard the Green Energy Express.
“For those who don’t think sustainable initiatives are affordable, check the figures… The city will save approximately $5 million each year, as the sustainable initiatives have caused the city of Las Vegas to reduce electricity usage by 30%. According to Mayor Carolyn Goodman, the city is now a “world leader in sustainability.” ~ Amanda Froelich
