Nevada's First 'Green' Consumer Guide Released by Clean Energy Project
More than 50 companies have already committed to support and implement clean energy practices and to be listed on Nevada’s first “Buy Green List”.
Las Vegas, Nevada - April 22, 2014 – Clean Energy Project (CEP) has released the “Buy Green List,” Nevada’s first sustainability driven consumer guide in observance of Earth Day and Earth Week.
"Empowering consumers by informing them about local companies, which not only support the clean energy economy, but also benefit from clean business practices, is essential to increasing demand for the clean energy economy,” said Lydia Ball, executive director CEP. “With this early success, we are confident even more Nevada businesses will become Buy Green List participants as the program continues to grow and expand.”
In late March, CEP held an introductory seminar outlining the “Buy Green List” program to interested companies and organizations. In less than three weeks, more than 50 Nevada-based companies and organizations, from various industries, committed to become more sustainable.
"First Friday strives to lead in festivals becoming more environmentally conscious,” said Charles Ressler with First Friday. “We want to show that from office to outdoor, festival production companies can reduce their impact and educate their attendees, thus inspiring other companies and festivals to do the same."
"Becoming a Buy Green List participant allows us to connect with customers and businesses who are also interested in sustainability, which is important to us,” said Pj Perez, co-owner of Creation Forge Studios. “In addition, our commitment to becoming more energy conscious will not only help lower our energy bills but also provides us a competitive advantage - an advantage I hope will diminish as more companies commit to the Buy Green List.”
About the “Buy Green List”
The “Buy Green List” program is intended to grow with the goal of having a majority of Nevada based businesses pledge to become more energy conscious. To be listed, companies must:
- Sign a pledge supporting clean energy practices in Nevada which include increased clean energy generation, increased energy saving practices and improved energy efficiency;
- Sign-up for NV Energy’s MyAccount program to easily track energy usage;
- Sign-up for NV Energy’s paperless billing service, and;
