The Nevada Assembly has voted to significantly boost the amount of renewable energy used in the state, one of several clean energy bills that lawmakers have recently advanced. .Assembly Bill 206 would push Nevada to reach 80 percent renewable energy by 2040, with an interim goal of 50 percent by 2030. The current RPS mandates the Nevada power mix must have only 25 percent renewable energy by 2025. The bill passed with bipartisan support and will now head to vote in the Senate Commerce, Labor and Energy committee​. If signed into the law, the bill would place Nevada in a top tier of states with ambitious renewable energy goals, including Oregon, New York and California.
