Background

Clark County is a dynamic and innovative organization dedicated to providing top-quality service with integrity, respect and accountability. With jurisdiction over the world-famous Las Vegas Strip and covering an area the size of New Jersey, Clark is the nation’s 14th-largest county and provides extensive regional services to more than 2 million citizens and 42 million visitors a year.

Clark County has worked hard to become more Energy Efficient and Energy Conscious. Clark County’s goal is to achieve the Triple Bottom Line: Economic, Social and Environmental impacts. Many energy conservation measures have been put into place to help achieve our goal of 20% by 2020. This includes building retrofits, renewable energy installations, behavior modifications and educational tools. The building retrofits help update our facilities to use more energy efficient techniques including LED lighting, variable frequency drives and high efficiency motors.

Clark County is proud to participate in the Better Buildings Challenge. The County intends to use this challenge as an additional motivational tool to encourage continued conservation efforts throughout the County facilities and being a positive role model to the community on encouraging “Green” living. Clark County is committed to their continuing efforts of building retrofits, renewable energy installations, behavior modification and education.
