I am writing today to urge you to support AB 206, legislation which will increase Nevada’s renewable portfolio standard to 50% by 2030 and set a goal of at least 80% by 2040.
Current law requires 25% of our electricity to come from renewable resources by 2025, and right now we are only getting about 14% of our power from clean energy resources. Nevada needs to do more. We need to expand our clean power sources and reclaim Nevada’s leadership as a producer and consumer of renewable energy.
I urge you to support and pass AB 206 this legislative session. Nevada is ready to accelerate our development of clean, renewable energy from our abundant solar and geothermal resources to power our economy, keep our air clean, and provide good paying jobs for Nevadans.
Please support AB 206 today.
