Solar Power on the Duck Valley Reservation Part 1

Greg Olson, the CEO of Blue Lighting based out of Boise, ID, joins Nathan Gregson to discuss the ongoing solar power project taking place on the Duck Valley Reservation.

They go over what inspired Greg Olson to start Blue Lightning, the living conditions on the Duck Valley Reservation, and some history on solar power projects on the Duck Valley Reservation. Clean sources of energy such as solar power are key to a sustainable future. On the Idaho Nevada border the power of the sun could be harnessed to better the lives of people living on the Duck Valley Reservation. The winners of the Rotary Eco Video Contest will be announced at Saturday’s upcoming Environmental Fair. The Fair located at Lookout Point in Pocatello will be open from 11 to 3 pm.
