New Energy Industry Task Force

Governor Brian Sandoval issued an executive order in January 2016 reconvening the New Energy Industry Task Force and charging it with providing recommendations on the best energy policies for Nevada's future. The Task Force will specifically address policies that encourage development of clean energy sources and integrate renewable energy technologies into Nevada's energy sector, foster the creation of a modern, resilient, and cost-effective energy grid, and support distributed generation and storage with a specific focus on rooftop solar and net metering. The order states that clean and renewable energy is important to the economy and environment of the State of Nevada. The Governor's Office of Energy Director serves as the chair of the Task Force, which also includes members of industry, utility, environmental interests, Nevada Legislature, as well as representation from other valuable stakeholders.
