Andy is urging people to let their elected officials know that sustainable clean energy from the sun, earth and water can be part of a bright future for the Reno-Tahoe region. It can spur economic growth and will make the air cleaner. Major companies like Microsoft and Tesla who are moving into the region are investing heavily in renewable energy. This is what we should be doing says Wirth. We should have a clear plan to put sustainable energy initiatives all across the country, not just in Reno, Nevada or Lake Tahoe, California. The full article by Andy Wirth on the importance of Renewable energy in the Reno-Tahoe region was published in the Reno Gazette Journal and can be viewed in full there.
