Prominent businessman and CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Resorts, Andy Wirth is ecstatic that the Reno City council has voted in favor of the Clean Power Plan. The plan’s goal is to create an economy in the United States that is built on and powered by clean energy. The city council has come on board as a proponent of the Clean Power Plan, joining powerful companies in the Reno-Tahoe area of Nevada and California as the latest backer of the plan. Together the council and major businesses in the area can push local utilities and citizens towards cleaner energy and a better future. Mr. Wirth applauds the actions of these companies and government council and sees it as a stepping stone forward in bringing renewable energy to the Reno-Tahoe region.
Mr. Wirth firmly believes that renewable energy is needed right now, and the sooner the better. “We can’t wait for clean energy to come to our area at some distant time in the future” Wirth states. “It should be developed here right now” he goes on.

Major companies are backing renewable energy projects all over the country, and going along with their lead can only speed up the process of creating reliable clean energy infrastructure in Reno-Tahoe where Wirth resides.
