Posted on — By Brenda Tena

Nearing the goal of $1 million

Fundraising for university-wide collaboration surpasses $750,000 with support from Switch and NV Energy Foundation.

Switch and NV Energy Foundation are lending their support to help UNLV’s Team Las Vegas design and build a full-size solar-powered house for the U.S. Department of Energy’s 2017 Solar Decathlon competition in October. Thanks to these key sponsors and other donors, the project is close to achieving its $1 million fundraising goal.
