(LAS VEGAS, Nev.) July 08, 2022
The Governor hosted a roundtable with solar leaders and clean energy workers at IBEW Local #357 today to discuss the current state of clean energy manufacturing in Nevada. He was joined by Nevada Senator Jacky Rosen for the discussion.
“In Nevada, we are experiencing the harsh impacts of climate change. Now is the time to develop clean energy to combat it, create a more stable Western grid while providing good-paying jobs,” said Governor Sisolak. "These discussions are critical – we need to work together to tackle this issue impacting all Nevadans.”
“As the top solar economy in the country with the most solar jobs per capita, Nevada is leading the way on clean energy, and that’s why I’ve been fighting so hard against the threat of job-killing solar tariffs,” said Senator Rosen. “Thanks to Governor Sisolak bringing us together with key solar industry stakeholders, we were able to have a robust discussion about how we can work together at the state and federal level to bolster domestic solar manufacturing and keep Nevada as the number one state for solar energy.”
