I swear, sometimes Nevada’s potential as a center of renewable energy is so great it’s hard to capture in words.
Speaking at Nellis Air Force Base Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Nevada’s potential for wind, geothermal, and solar energy is so vase that, “We are the Saudi Arabia, potentially, of renewable energy.”
A little later in the day in a Review-Journal conference room, Gov. Jim Gibbons spoke of the potential for Nevada to become a veritable mecca of renewable energy.
If we play our renewable cards right, Gibbons said, “Nevada can come out of this recession as the Texas of green energy.”
So which is it, gentlemen? The Saudi Arabia or the Texas of renewable energy?
It’s neither, if Nevada’s state and federal political leaders don’t move swiftly to ace out growing competition from other states.
