WNC hosts activities for Earth Week

Western Nevada College will celebrate Earth Week with a variety of activities that offer Northern Nevadans a chance to become more energy-conscious in everyday life.

The highlight of the week will be dedication of the college's first solar array at 11 a.m. Wednesday. The 840 ground-mounted solar panels now standing on the west side of campus are projected to save the college as much as $28,000 each year in electricity costs.
