Las Vegas Reaches HUGE Energy Milestone


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Las Vegas is doing it’s part to fight climate change. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Just last week, Las Vegas announced it has reached its goal of powering the city entirely with renewable energy, meeting a goal the city has been working toward for nearly a decade. The goal was reached with the launch of Boulder Solar 1, a 100-megawatt solar plant located just outside the city.

Las Vegas began its renewable energy project in 2008, reducing electricity usage through sustainability programs and installing solar panels on city buildings. Las Vegas will also receive power from Hoover Dam for the first time in its history, starting at the end of 2017.

The city has reduced its electricity usage by more than 30 percent due to these initiatives. Estimates place the city's yearly energy savings at approximately $5 million.

Las Vegas is now the largest U.S. city to be powered entirely by renewable energy. The second largest city, Burlington, Vermont, achieved this status in 2014.”

    We have solar panels all across the UK, so your right by saying you dont
    need that much sun -_-

    • Posted by Mike Hathaway, at Reply

      Yes but solar is a pain in snow areas. You need systems that can remove
      snow. Of course if we had a decent power grid those areas could install
      solar where it worked and transmit it back to the state.

    give the “coal miners” free training in a different fields of energy.
    problem solved

    • Posted by Mike Hathaway, at Reply

      That is because you paid for it directly, and you also were paying for all
      the subsidies, tax breaks, cleanup taken on by the government etc… to
      support our energy infrastructure. You are right most people can’t afford
      to pay for 2 energy systems. But we should be deploying solar where it is
      easy, and that is being prevented by the grid and laws in many states
      including california that prevent citizens and most businesses from pumping
      power back into the grid ie running the meter backwards. Walmart cant throw
      solar on top of their store because the store does not use enough power to
      justify the infrastructure, and they can’t cover the entire store with
      solar and power the neighborhood there store is in which would make it a
      financially a no brainer.

    • Posted by ActosMagus, at Reply

      +Maz X I daresay that there’s a supply/demand issue with solar panels that
      makes them more expensive than they otherwise would be. And that’s going to
      continue until manufacturing capacity and methods catch up to demand.
      Secondly, I think you’re ignoring the main non-environmental selling point
      about solar – the trade off is spend a lot of money up front to save far
      more money than you initially invested over the lifespan of the panels.

    • Posted by bebomac5, at Reply

      ActosMagus Solar panels and solar energy storage prices are plummeting,
      they have been for quite some time, and in the next few years prices will
      drop even more steeply.

    Renewable energy is SO CHEAP!

    • Posted by Brian Linderman, at Reply

      wildreams Wind energy doesn’t even compete with the petroleum industry, but
      petroleum products are used in the manufacturing of wind turbines. Wind
      produces power, versus petroleum produces fuels. We significantly decreased
      the amount of petroleum used for power since the 1970s

    • Posted by wildreams, at Reply

      +Brian Linderman I understand that, I’m not saying that it directly
      competes with petroleum.

    • Posted by Mike Hathaway, at Reply

      And it replaces the dirtiest most expensive energy. We use the most power
      on the hottest days, power companies have to run peaking plants/generators
      to keep up which costs a fortune. Solar runs best at these times and when
      it cools of and power usage drops solar also drops off, ie night.

    • Posted by Brian Linderman, at Reply

      Mike Hathaway the idea that solar is not dirty is an absolute lie

      +klondike444 they have 60 nuclear power plants
      they are closing all of them

    • Posted by Brian Linderman, at Reply

      Burak Çzmc See Germany says they will close down their plants, but they
      typically end up making new ones (look at coal production). The only way
      that Germany is removing all of its nuclear is if it’s replacing it all
      with coal. This would be a very strange decision seeing as Nuclear is
      cleaner, safer and more productive per unit than coal.

    • Posted by JOOGAL1111, at Reply

      What’s the sun? where I live is in the northern hemisphere, the sun is just
      a glowey thing behind the clouds for practically the whole year, our
      summers are a joke and the sun is in extremely short supply in the winter
      and never rises high enough for months of the year to make solar a
      realistic solution. Deserts are generally nearer the equator.

    • Posted by caseybv74, at Reply

      They don’t have to have full sunlight to work. They are just less efficient
      in cloudy areas. Are the plants where you’re from green? That’s from the

    • Posted by JOOGAL1111, at Reply

      True, but their efficiency drops of sharply if not in full sun, Also with
      the sun not reaching above the horizon by much giving a poor angle for long
      stretches in the winter (coupled with almost constant cloud cover) this
      also decreases sharply their efficiency. More than willing to accept the
      near the equator and in hot dry regions solar is the way to go, the further
      north you go the less solar is an option. As for plants they’ve had
      billions of years to adapt to varying climates and they don’t grow in the
      winter for the same reason solar is useless,, total lack of sunlight..
      nearer the equator they grow all year round.
