The iconic Welcome to Las Vegas sign is going green, not the color, but the concept.
The Clark County Commission voted Tuesday to allow a company to make the sign solar-powered.
In the presentation, Green Chips told the commissioners that installing the solar trees to power the sign will not cost the county any money.
Instead, the company will rely on donations from the Consumer Electronics Association and NV Energy, as well as, a grant from the Las Vegas Centennial History grant program.
The solar trees will be installed behind the sign. So, it will look the same as it did when it was first installed on the Las Vegas Strip in 1959.
There will be a public display explaining how the renewable energy system works. The solar power should be flowing to the sign by early next year.
