There is also no shortage of sun.

Now, a Las Vegas-based nightlife and hospitality company has found a way to draw on Las Vegas’ natural excess of sun to guarantee even more beer, babes and pool parties.

N9NE Group recently unveiled Las Vegas’ first solar-powered DJ booth during Ditch Fridays at the Palms Pool and Bungalows. The booth, built by Sustainable Waves, uses Sharp solar panels to harness power and Outback inverters to convert it into 110 volts of electricity. 

Miller Lite also sponsors the booth and all the banners advertising Miller around the Palms pool are printed on a biodegradable vinyl.

The solar powered booth is just one of the creative methods businesses in Las Vegas are utilizing to reduce their carbon footprint.  There are many green initiatives in place behind the scenes at some of the largest resorts in Las Vegas. The Palms Resort even has its own green blog. For more tips on being green while vacationing in Vegas, click here.

Yes, I’m from Las Vegas. But I’d like to clarify a few things: I don’t live in a hotel and I’m not a showgirl. I put my pasties on one nipple at a time, just like everyone else. I’m a regular girl who plunges off the side of ridiculously tall Las Vegas landmarks and writes about it for a living. I also ride roller coasters, hang at the spa, shoot holes in zombies and take art lessons from bottlenose dolphins. You know, normal stuff. My career as a journalist and copywriter has led me out of Vegas and around the world, but the 24/7 normality of Las Vegas sucks me back in every time. Am I oblivious to the plethora of slot machines everywhere I go? Sure. But that’s because I’m distracted by all the pretty lights. Follow me on Google+ and Twitter.
