Utility Dive covered Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak's signed executive order requiring state agencies to enact plans to limit greenhouse gas emissions across the state and included reaction by AEE's Sarah Steinberg. Read excerpts below and the entire UD piece here. This story was also covered by Smart Grid Today (sub. req.).
Sisolak has a growing record on climate-related issues; he was elected last year after supporting a 100% clean energy mandate for Nevada, and in March, the state officially joined the U.S. Climate Alliance, a group of 25 states that plan to reduce emissions 28% below 2005 levels by 2025. In April, the state passed a bill adopting a 50% renewable electricity target for 2030 and a 100% carbon-free electricity target for 2050.
