NEVADA

In April 2019, the Governor of Nevada signed legislation requiring 50% of the state’s energy to come from renewable sources by 2030. “According to the governor’s office, Nevada’s clean energy jobs employed more than 32,000 people at the end of 2018. And the state’s new renewable energy standards could lead to an additional 11,170 jobs by 2030, generating $539 million in wages and $1.5 billion in economic activity.”
