LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm is focusing on clean energy during her tour in the Las Vegas valley Friday.
She will stop by the recently opened $250-million Air Liquide factory which converts gas from landfills into hydrogen to power emission-free cars and trucks.
The North Las Vegas facility can produce 30 tons of hydrogen a day. Director Dave Edwards told 8 News Now in an earlier interview, that the daily amount could fuel around 40,000 fuel-cell vehicles.
Currently, Air Liquide is sending all of its liquid hydrogens to California where there is a demand for it.
Granholm will also visit a Henderson facility that uses technology to update the electrical grid and she will also stop by an energy-efficient home.
Granholm was in northeastern Arizona for the past two days and held roundtable discussions on the clean energy transition and energy opportunities in rural areas.
The Biden administration wants to highlight its push toward transitioning to clean energy.
