Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today on powering the historic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign with solar power.
“The historic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign is synonymous with Las Vegas and today’s event reinforces Nevada’s commitment to a clean energy future. The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign has always represented the essence of Las Vegas and today that includes clean energy just as much as being one of the world’s preeminent tourist destinations. There’s no better place to harness the power of the sun than where the sun shines nearly every day of the year. I remain committed to creating jobs by continuing to grow our clean energy economy in Nevada, and I applaud the Clark County Commission and clean energy advocates for making today’s event a reality.
