Clean Energy Works for Nevada is a coalition of businesses and advocates who support a strong clean energy economy for the Silver State. We believe smart state policies and investments in clean energy today will mean economic success for our state tomorrow.
Businesses in Nevada are already leading the way on clean energy. Companies like Apple and Tesla have located innovative manufacturing facilities in our state because of the abundance of clean power to meet their sustainability and social responsibility goals. Others, including Switch data centers and top gaming companies like MGM and Wynn have invested in their own clean solar power plants because they it makes good economic sense.
NV Energy, the state’s largest electric utility, has proposed adding more than 1,000 megawatts of new solar and 100 megawatts of battery storage as part of a plan to double its existing renewable power production. The plan will save consumers money on expensive out-of-state fossil fuels and instead bring those dollars to work right here at home.
Moreover, there are thousands of Nevadans employed directly by clean energy businesses that install rooftop solar panels, make energy efficiency upgrades, and provide support to Nevada’s clean energy economy. Outside of the energy sector, small businesses across all industries are also increasingly interested in how to take advantage of the clean energy economy to lower their electric bills and improve the health and environment of communities across the state.
To guarantee every Nevadan has access to affordable, clean, and reliable power, as well as healthy communities and good jobs, we need smart state policy that supports business investments in clean energy. By setting strong renewable energy standards and promoting innovative technology, financing, and accounting for clean power, we can harness the full potential of our state’s natural energy resources.
