GCNV Luncheon – Local Renewable Energy

April 18 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm


Our Topic

The benefits of renewable energy over fossil fuels are clear.  Energy from wind, water, or sun is cleaner and doesn’t cause the same harm to our environment as fossil fuels.

In Nevada, we import most of our energy, meaning we purchase it from out of state and then have to transport it here!  So every time we turn on a light or drive we are sending our dollars out of state and bringing pollution home.  When we produce energy at home we are benefiting our environment AND our economy.  We will learn more about local energy in Nevada and what is being done to create energy here at home.

Our Speakers

C’Les Jensema

Are you interested in generating some of your own energy and reducing your carbon footprint? Please join C’Les Jensema, Project Administrator from NV Energy, to learn more about the SolarGenerations program. She’ll share information on NV Energy’s Renewable Generation projects, how a rooftop solar system works, the available incentives and the application process.
