Through an agreement with NV Energy, the City of Las Vegas is excited to announce its plans to be powered by 100 percent renewable energy! All city operations will be offset by renewable power made possible by a new large scale solar project and energy efficiency measures. Effective in January of 2017 once approved by the Public Utilities Commission.

“Every city light, city park, community center, fire station and service yard will be 100 percent covered by renewable energy,” – Mayor Goodman

The deal arranged between the city and NV Energy allows city facilities to draw energy from a 100 megawatt solar project being built near Boulder City. NV Energy is not the owner of the solar project, but will be purchasing the power and then delivering it to city facilities.
