Nevada Magazine goes green
With a climate as conducive to harnessing geothermal, solar, and wind power as any on Earth, Nevada is positioning itself as a leader in the green movement. Companies such as Ormat Technologies (geothermal), Sempra Generation (solar), and Nevada Wind Company are either expanding or planning to incorporate in the state.
Other stories in the issue support the green theme, including how to eat green and reduce your carbon footprint—which in turn promotes healthy eating habits. Other stories focus on green building and LEED certification, including Incline Village's Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences, Reno's Patagonia outlet, and Las Vegas' Springs Preserve and CityCenter, the new mega resort which opens in December.
Nevada Magazine’s Tour Around Nevada continues in Laughlin, the sixth town recognized in the campaign in which people vote for their favorite rural towns. The top vote getter for a particular two-month period (Nevada Magazine is published every two months) is recognized in a later issue. The stories provide a snapshot of each town's attractions and history.
To vote for your favorite Nevada town (Carson City, Las Vegas, and Reno are excluded), e-mail email@example.com and include the town and “Tour Around NV” in the subject line.
