Clean Energy Project, a Nevada-based nonprofit organization promoting the clean energy economy, and Small Business Majority, a national nonprofit group providing practical solutions to some of the biggest problems facing small businesses today, are offering several web-based seminars to Nevada small businesses in the coming weeks.

“These sessions will provide Nevada’s small businesses with some practical guidance on changing environmental standards and tips on saving money,” said Tim Gaudette, Western Outreach Manager for Small Business Majority. “Small businesses provide the foundation for a healthy economy, so it is important to give small business owners as much support as possible.”
