. . .Gov. Sisolak’s signing of Senate Bill 358 requires energy generated and used in Nevada to come from at least 50% clean energy sources by 2030, up from 25% by 2025 previously in state law. By signing the bill, Sisolak fulfilled one of his central campaign promises and responded to a ballot question last November in which Nevada voters overwhelmingly supported a stronger RPS.

The growth of Nevada’s clean energy economy helped SB358, sponsored by Senator Chris Brooks, sail through the state Senate and Assembly without a single “no” vote. The legislation also enjoyed support from a broad coalition of businesses, local chambers of commerce, labor unions, and community groups.
