(Las Vegas, NV) — National and local speakers will be featured at the Green By Southwest Leadership Conference and Expo this week at Springs Preserve. The Green Chips organization is co-hosting the event. Executive Director Rick Van Diepen says the focus will be on high level green “living” buildings and net-zero energy conservation strategies.
The three day expo will include tours of the Springs Preserve, which is one of the first LEED Platinum certified green facilities in Nevada.
Green Chips was behind getting the “Welcome To Las Vegas” sign 100 percent solar powered. Van Diepen says the Las Vegas resorts are becoming leaders in the green movement. Local utility companies are doing a great job too.
