“Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign to go solar powered!
You probably might have come across the iconic Las Vegas sign, either while driving by it or in a movie. This formal announcement that lets people know they’ve reached the land of dreams will now be powered up by clean and renewable energy! The “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign will be connected to fake trees equipped with solar panels, as part of a plan by a nonprofit organization Green Chips.
The Clark County commissioners approved the plan to have the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign go green and work will begin this fall. The project is scheduled to be completed by the 1st of Jan. Las Vegas is known to be a sunny place and is a great place to harvest ever-abundant solar energy. The solar apparatus for the project will be funded by a private grant from the Virginia-based Consumer Electronics Association and donations from other organizations.
