How are Vegas Casino’s trying to go green?

    LEED certification is the first step.  The huge, energy-sapping buildings manage to make themselves look better (and do indeed save a lot of energy) by meeting LEED standards.  The Palazzo scored a silver LEED rating.  In 2005, Nevada guaranteed a big tax break for owners of LEED-certified buildings, so that’s certainly an incentive. 

    A number of casinos are also participating in Green Chips, an initiative that encourages green job creation and eco-friendly projects in Nevada. 

    This isn’t a casino exactly, but Viva Vision on Fremont Street in Vegas has switched to LED lights in its light canopy.
