With the flip of a switch, Las Vegas city officials today celebrated the powering up of 15,000 new solar panels that will provide energy to a nearby wastewater treatment plant.
The ground-mounted panels are packed tightly on 25 acres of city-owned land near Vegas Valley Drive and Nellis Boulevard.
The site had previously been a vacant strip of land the city used as a buffer for its wastewater treatment plant, which processes all of the city’s wastewater on its way to Lake Mead.
Proverbs 22:16 "A person who gets ahead by oppressing the poor or by showering gifts on the rich will end in poverty."

15,000 solar panels to generate 3mw of power in Las Vegas to boot. I wish alternate energy people would realize that its just not a feasible technology it would take 4.5 million panels to produce the power of the average nuclear plant.

Aww, that's cute. The sparkling city in the middle of the desert, epitomizing the very worst of North American wastefulness, is pretending it cares about the environment.

Try shutting Vegas down so that a huge amount of water doesn't have to get pumped in daily just so rich people can have thousands and thousands of pools and maybe then you'll make a real impact.

If only we had some sort of science people who could think about things to make them better.

Remember, we can't invest in anything but oil since nothing else works due to no investment in alternate sources of energy.

I wish the light bulb people would realize these bulbs burn out too fast. It's just not feasible for a mass market, what is Edison even thinking? Gas lights are far better.

Whoa cool

Now solve the problem about actually transferring that energy to population centers

Oh

I guess solar isn't actually viable after all?
