Andy Wirth is in support of the Reno City Council’s vote to support the Clean Power Plan, that is aimed at moving closer to renewable energy and away from power energy. By voting for the plan, the council also became a very integral entity in supporting the plan together with different private sector companies. According to Reno Gazette-Journal, Andy is happy that a healthy, new, sustainable growing economy has dawned, and it will have a very big impact providing equal opportunities to all. He is happy that big strides have been made regarding clean energy production. He is also glad that the companies that have been in the forefront in leading the way in the transition have put pressure on elected officials so as to hasten the pace.
Andy says that the time has come for the citizenry to ask more of the leaders it has elected. He is optimistic that the region can become much better if it can rely on clean energy for the rest of the 21st century and help make stronger and healthy economies. A vibrant economy can never be hindered by the progress made in the Clean Power Plan; if anything, it paves a better path for the same.
