The visit by President Barack Obama on Wednesday to the Eldorado Valley shined a light not only on solar energy, but Boulder City’s role in helping the energy companies establish their plants.
Mayor Roger Tobler said it is about time people outside the area notice what is happening in the city.
“We’re just proud and excited by what we’ve been accomplishing down in the energy zone as a city,” Tobler said. “Finally we are starting to see some awareness and recognition of the fact that we’re leading the way in solar energy. Of course, these aren’t our plants, but this is something we’ve been working on for eight years.”
