GCNV Luncheon – Local Renewable Energy

April 18, 2018 @ 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
