Governor's Committee on Energy Choice

On November 8, 2016, the voters of the State of Nevada approved Ballot Question 3: The Energy Choice Initiative, which would amend the Nevada Constitution if voters approve the initiative again in the 2018 general election.

Question 3 would amend State policy that "electricity markets be open and competitive so that all electricity customers are afforded meaningful choice among different providers, and that economic and regulatory burdens be minimized in order to promote competition and choices in the electric energy market."

On February 9, 2017, Governor Brian Sandoval signed Executive Order 2017-03 establishing the membership, chairmanship, mission, timeline, and issues to address on the Governor's Committee on Energy Choice. The committee's mission is to identify the legal, policy, and procedural issues that need to be resolved, and to offer suggestions and proposals for legislative, regulatory, and executive actions that need to be taken for the effective and efficient implementation of The Energy Choice Initiative.
