Current Activity: GOE Prepares for Public Meeting
The Nevada Governor’s Office of Energy (GOE) is currently planning for a public meeting to gather information and feedback to inform the program design to improve the resilience of the electric grid against disruptive events. You can use our public comment form to have your comments entered into the record for the meeting or sign up for email updates if you would like to be notified when the meeting will be held.
Under the 2022 federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) section 40101(d), the federal Department of Energy (DOE) will provide formula-fund grants to states and tribes to improve the resilience of their electric grids. States and tribes can allocate funds to eligible entities. This funding offers the opportunity to advance the capabilities of states and tribes, and their communities, to address present and future resilience needs.
Nevada has been awarded $10,543,609.
