How Casinos Are Saving Money and Energy

For someone concerned about green energy, the Las Vegas Strip is a nightmare. The sheer amount of power that goes into lighting up all those neon signs night after night is astonishing. That’s before you even get inside: the air-conditioning which is in use for the majority of the year is another major power-drain. In 2007, Forbes claimed that Las Vegas as a whole uses 5,600MW on a summer’s day and that the Strip accounts for 20% of this demand. Very roughly, that’s the output of a large coal plant or medium nuclear plant. So what can casinos do to lessen their energy consumption and become greener?

A good return from what felt like a slow month. I find that focusing on ‘doing the right thing’, never ignoring a profitable offer, no matter how small, means that lots of small amounts can quickly add up. Return per hour rather than per offer is the way I try to view things.

Onto November and still plenty to go at. I am only a few hundred away from having my best year at this, and now closing on 7 years shows that it is sustainable.
