In Nevada, Renewable Energy is a Unanimous Winner

When it comes to clean energy, the sun is shining once again in Nevada.

State lawmakers just passed — and Gov. Steve Sisolak is expected to sign — legislation that would require Nevada to get 50 percent of its energy from solar, geothermal, and other clean, renewable sources by 2030. The legislation, sponsored by state Sen. Chris Brooks of Las Vegas, also sets a goal for the state’s utilities to get 100 percent of its electricity from zero-carbon sources by 2050.
