On Friday, June 16th, 2017, the Nevada Chapter of AEE will host a free field trip to visit the Switch Data Center in Las Vegas.

Founded in 2000, this global technology solutions company is built on the intelligent and sustainable growth of the Internet.  Switch operates two data center facilities in Las Vegas, providing security, power and cooling for stacks of thousands of servers owned by more than 1,000 clients that include eBay, Xerox, Zappos, Amazon, DreamWorks, Shutterfly and the U.S. government. Switch built multiple levels of energy redundancy, including revolutionary tri-redundant power systems, modular building design and 100% heat containment technologies, which eliminate client concerns regarding power, cooling, connectivity and/or space.

This tour will demonstrate behind-the-scenes operations of the most efficient data center in the world.

Bring: Comfortable shoes, tons of energy questions

The first 40 members that RSVP will have a place reserved for them, any remaining spaces will go to registered guests. For security reasons, substitutions will not be permitted.

On Friday, August 18, 2017, the Nevada Chapter of the Association of Energy Engineers will host a free field trip to visit the High Roller at the LINQ.  

Measuring 550 feet in diameter, the High Roller at the LINQ is the largest observation wheel in the world. Each of the 28 cabins are spacious (fitting up to 40 people per ride) with two small benches available for those that prefer seating.  Seatbelts are not necessary, as each the wheel moves at the gentle speed of one foot per second and each cabin is fully enclosed in 300 square feet of floor-to-ceiling glass. There are also eight monitor screens per cabin, which host dynamic video/music shows coordinated with different views and touch points, including reaching the highest point during the ride.
