Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) — The Governor’s Office of Energy awarded Wynn Encore Resort and Casino a partial property tax incentive lasting 10 years for introducing energy and water savings measures for its 8,283,000 square feet of Las Vegas property.

The resort and casino received the incentive after meeting the “Gold” equivalency standards of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design from the U.S. Green Building Council, which established a rating system for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of green buildings.

To achieve LEED equivalency, Wynn Encore management ordered the installation of more efficient plumbing fixtures and fittings, established sustainability procedures to enhance operations, modified purchasing practices to favor goods with recycled content, and improved employees’ commuting practices.

These efficiency upgrades will save Wynn Encore an estimated 16% in indoor water usage. The energy efficiency measures give the resort and casino a level of energy efficiency that is better than 82% of buildings of comparable size.

The GOE decision to approve the incentive highlights the office’s ability to facilitate cooperation among stakeholders, lead initiatives to stimulate economic development, and attract energy related business ventures that include site development, energy education, and retro-fitting.

Mystic River Watershed Association

One of the many nonprofit organizations that Wynn Everett supports is the Mystic River Watershed Association. Since 2010, Mystic River Watershed Association has been actively working towards eradicating water chestnuts, an invasive plant clogging the Mystic River. In 2014, this association organized 941 volunteers to hand-pull 6,603 baskets of water chestnuts. This was in addition to thousands of tons that were removed by a mechanical harvester.
