(Las Vegas, NV)  —  The iconic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign has gone green.

Local officials switched on the lights Wednesday night, powered exclusively by three solar trees.

Clark County commissioners approved the private-public partnership for the south Strip sign last year.

The famous neon welcome sign has been a Sin City fixture since 1959.
