Wynn Resorts announced the appointment of Erik Hansen as the gaming giant’s first chief sustainability officer, a position from which he will develop Wynn’s global sustainability strategy and energy procurement goals.

He negotiated, built and led the opening of the 160-acre, 20-megawatt Wynn Solar Facility and managed the Wynn Las Vegas shift to the open energy market.

This was the first such micro grid to be implemented at an individual resort.
