Comments Off on Solar Trees Now Power the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” Sign

While the bulk of the energy usage may be happening just a few blocks north, Las Vegas is going a little bit greener by powering the iconic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” with three solar trees. For years the sign has been a marker that lets people know that they have arrived in Sin City. Now the sign will also act as a symbol of the city’s commitment to renewable energy. To realize their Clean Energy Project , Nevada worked with Green Chips , a non-profit focused on sustainability and the Clark County Commission to erect a three-tree solar installation next to the sign. The installation not only provides much needed shade for tourists, it also powers up what may be one of the world’s most photographed locations.
