Many businesses in Reno, Nevada, have made the first steps toward businesses that rely less on dirty energy, and only on clean, “green” sources of energy for the business. The Clean Power Plan is what the plan has been named, and it does not require much change by any of the businesses at any one point in time. The Clean Power Plan is set forth to take place over a number of years, as any transition to new sources of energy is difficult for any business to do.
Mr. Andy Wirth is the chairman of the Reno Airport Authority Board which is over the Clean Power Plan. Mr. Wirth is the CEO of Squaw Valley, one of the most popular ski resorts in the United States of America. It is actually estimated to be the sixth most popular ski resort. Mr. Wirth has helped Squaw Valley grow to the size that it is today, although it has always been a top-notch ski resort in the States.
Andy Wirth was born in West Germany and grew up in the United States. Mr. Wirth attended Colorado State University and graduated in 1983. He worked at Steamboat, a large ski resort company, and did very well there. He was named the CEO of Squaw Valley in only 2010.
The Clean Power Plan is going to actually attract more business to Reno because more companies in the future will want to travel to a city where there are already established clean energy systems. Reno is the first of many cities to start moving forward in the push for green energy.
Any businesses in the city of Reno do not have to make the change, but businesses are encouraged to start implementing green sources of energy if at all possible.
