Renewable Energy and the Environment

Electric Vehicles

Along with our efforts to protect habitat, work on environmental projects, and cooperate with environmental groups, NV Energy is doing its share by promoting clean sources of renewable energy.

Nevada is Ranked First in the Nation in Both Installed Geothermal Energy and Installed Solar Energy Capacity on a Per-person Basis.

We are very proud of our accomplishments in furthering Renewable Energy in Nevada. And every day we are doing even more. The State of Nevada has taken a leadership role in the nation's effort to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and foreign oil. State law mandates that a significant portion of the energy we sell to our customers comes from renewable sources. In its most recent Integrated Resource Plan filed with -- and approved by -- the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada, NV Energy will spend approximately $2 billion to purchase and invest in new renewable energy by 2015.
