New Energy Industry Task Force
Governor Brian Sandoval issued an executive order in November 2011 charging the New Energy Industry Task Force with facilitating the timely development of transmission facilities and renewable energy resources in the state. Task Force work will include the development of the “business case” for renewable energy in the state and transmission planning recommendations to the Governor by the fall of 2012. The order states that coordination of transmission planning and development is critical to the success of the renewable energy industry in Nevada. The Energy Office Director serves as the chair of the Task Force, which also includes members of industry, utility, transmission development, environmental interests, as well as representation from the PUCN, Nevada System of Higher Education, the Bureau of Land Management, Consumer Protection, and other valuable stakeholders.
