 Wynn Las Vegas marks a new renewable energy milestone with its acceptance into the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Green Power Partnership, a collective of organizations that are voluntarily leading the innovation, production and use of green energy in America. The distinction comes less than five months after the debut of the Wynn Solar Facility, a new 160-acre solar complex solely dedicated to generating renewable energy to power the Las Vegas resort.

Combined with 103,000 square feet of on-site rooftop solar panels, Wynn Las Vegas is creating and using more than 45 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power annually, which is enough green power to meet 25 percent of the resort's electric load. According to the U.S. EPA, this is equivalent to the annual electricity use of more than 4,000 average American homes. Based on this finding, Wynn Las Vegas becomes the largest Green Power Partner in the hotel industry in the nation, and the only casino resort in Nevada on the list. Additionally, Wynn Las Vegas joins an elite group of Fortune 500® companies that are current Green Power Partners, including Microsoft, Intel, Bank of America, Apple, Johnson & Johnson and Starbucks.

"It is an honor to be recognized by the U.S. EPA for our commitment to protecting our planet's resources," said Erik Hansen, Chief Sustainability Officer for Wynn Resorts. "We are proud to be the national leader in green energy use in the hotel industry, proving that integrating large-scale energy efficient measures can be done in a way that only enhances the guest experience."

Wynn Las Vegas remains dedicated to increasing sustainable design practices, creating and sourcing renewable energy, and exceeding LEED Gold Building Certification standards for projects in Las Vegas as well as Encore Boston Harbor, currently under construction in Everett, Massachusetts.
