He was happy that the vote had brought the country much nearer to access clean, renewable power and move away from coal power. According to the Reno-Gazette Journal, the council joined another not less than a dozen individually owned companies that were also in full support of the plan and Andy was optimistic that with the council joining the team, it was more likely that their plea for a better energy alternative would be heard.

He said that the plan was all about creating a better power alternative that was devoid of impurities as well as creating a better economy that could be easily sustained.
