Nevada voters made history last night.
Nevada families will head to the polls tomorrow and cast their ballots in a host of hotly contested races. But whether you’re a Republican, Democrat or Independent, there are two things all voters agree on: They want clean air and they want prosperity. A vote YES on Question 6 will bring the state both. The measure will ensure that 50 percent of Nevada’s power comes from renewable sources, like solar and wind, by 2030. This will reduce pollution, lower energy bills and create more jobs for those developing solar projects.
Two leading solar organizations, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Vote Solar Action Fund, today announced their support for Nevada’s Question 6, a measure on the November 6 ballot that will increase the state’s renewable energy targets to 50 percent by 2030.
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) urged Nevada to update its Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) at the ballot in November after the state’s largest utility said it had met its renewable energy goal for the eighth year in a row. Below is a statement from Sean Gallagher, SEIA’s vice president of state affairs:
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Following is a statement from Sean Gallagher, vice president of state affairs of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA): “Nevadans have said loud and clear they want the choice to install solar on their own homes and see solar jobs grow again in Nevada. That was the intent of AB 405, and we are pleased the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada recognized that in its ruling today. Solar businesses in the state now have the certainty they need to get back to work, which means the jobs and economic benefits will follow in short order." ###
