We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB

It’s the last Friday in May, and time for some good news to take you into June with a smile. The post I’ve chosen to share this month is about a planned solar project in Nevada that has been approved by the US Department of the Interior and the Bureau of Land Management. The project will result in the largest solar facility in the United States and the 8th largest in the world.

And the best part? The renewable energy generated from the facility will offset the annual greenhouse emissions from 83,000 cars. There will also be long-term monitoring of the project to reduce the possible negative environmental impacts caused by the facility.

Here’s how #WATWB works: On the last Friday of each month a number of bloggers participate in a worldwide blog hop in which each blogger highlights a story that spreads good news, happiness, and hope.

Your cohosts for this month are Eric LahtiSusan Scott, Dan AntionDamyanti Biswas, and Inderpreet Kaur Uppal. And if you want to read more uplifting articles, please visit the WATWB Facebook page here or the Twitter home page here to find links to other stories.
