Green Chips Receives Donation from Computer Electronics Association.
PRLog - Jan. 14, 2013 - LAS VEGAS -- Green Chips, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to sustainability efforts throughout southern Nevada received a $50,000 donation from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, owner and producer of the International CES®, the world’s largest annual innovation event, which was held last week in Las Vegas. Green Chips (http://www.greenchips.org) was awarded the donation to advance clean energy and sustainable living. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority also received a $50,000 donation for sustainability projects from CEA.

Green Chips, a unique public/private partnership that advances environmental sustainability initiatives, plans to use its $50,000 donation from CEA to support a proposed solar installation project at the iconic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign on Las Vegas Boulevard. In the last two years, with the assistance of CEA donations, Green Chips installed solar panels at the Las Vegas Recuse Mission and at a local Salvation Army, in addition to other sites, to significantly reducing energy bills for both nonprofits.

“We’re proud to partner with the consumer electronics industry and CEA in helping to power Las Vegas via solar panels,” said Cindy Ortega, vice president, MGM Resorts International and chairperson for the Green Chips Board of Trustees. “In a city that gets 300 days a year of sunshine, that is a powerful commitment.’’

The Clean Energy Project (CEP), a Las Vegas-based nonprofit organization that promotes the benefits of a clean energy economy, is leading efforts for the proposed solar installation project at the Welcome to Las Vegas sign thanked Green Chips for its support.

“We greatly appreciate the assistance from Green Chips and are excited to be involved with such an exciting community solar project,” said Lydia Ball, Executive Director of CEP.

Additionally, Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani who has been working with CEP on the solar project and is a member of the Green Chips board welcomes the donation.
