LAS VEGAS — The theme of Tuesday’s National Clean Energy Summit, hosted by Democratic U.S. Sen. Harry Reid was “the power of choice.”
Nevertheless, most of the speakers indicated they want politicians and government — not the choices of American consumers — to determine the country’s energy future.
“All forms of government, from federal down to the state, need to be aligned if we’re going to be successful in building a green economy,” asserted Reid during the conference.
Held at the Bellagio Resort and Casino, the fifth annual summit featured a keynote address by former President Bill Clinton and several panel discussions facilitated by lawmakers and leaders in the renewable-energy industry.
