The Renewable Energy Tax Abatement program administers Nevada’s renewable energy tax abatements, which came under the Energy Office’s jurisdiction in July 2011. The program awards partial sales and use tax and partial property-tax abatements to eligible renewable energy producers. The Energy Office reviews the abatement applications, conducts public hearings to determine eligibility, and reviews annual compliance audits after abatements have been granted.


    Regulations for the program were adopted in 2010. The state has approved 18 tax abatement applications, which include large scale solar PV, solar thermal, biomass, geothermal, and wind projects throughout the state. A list of projects is available online here.
