My sincere thanks to everyone who attended our Clean Energy 2015 event on February 25th. A packed house – more than 160 clean energy supporters - turned out to say goodbye to our departing staff and hello to the new CEP.
We sent our departing staff members off in style and with well-earned accolades! Lydia Ball, our former executive director, and Mike Litt, Field Director both received recognition by representatives of U.S. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and U.S. Representative Dina Titus.
As we turned and looked to the future, I spoke about my vision for building the next story onto CEP’s already solid foundation, and about what 2015 holds for CEP and Nevada’s clean energy industry.
