Nevada Senator Harry Reid discusses energy and agriculture projects at the greenhouses at the University of Nevada, Reno.
Reno, NV – Nevada Senator Harry Reid toured renewable energy and agriculture projects at the greenhouses Wednesday afternoon at the University of Nevada, Reno. On the tour, Reid saw a biomass project that focuses on converting algae to biofuels, a solar retrofit project being done with NV Energy, and an alternative crop project where lettuce is grown using hydroponic methods.
“Nevada is blessed with enough geothermal, solar, wind and biomass resources to power a clean energy revolution,” Reid said. “Renewable energy and efficiency means thousands of jobs and billions of dollars of investment in Nevada. That potential makes it exciting to see the next generation of clean energy industry leaders studying and gaining hands on experience in the production of clean energy right here at UNR.”
