Energy efficiency retrofits add value to buildings

Nevada has been approved for a DOE competitive grant to assist in energy retrofits across Nevada. The grant will help commercial buildings develop energy efficient retrofit projects, making it easier for businesses, contractors and energy suppliers to undertake these efforts.

Through this grant, we hope to provide a consistent set of resources & policies to develop a sustainable industry for contractors & energy professionals for the long-term, thereby creating jobs as the retrofits are accomplished

Renewables like solar & geothermal are big opportunity

There is no better time than now to identify the future of our renewable energy industry and transmission planning around the West.

We know there are long-term training and job opportunities in the energy retrofit industry, manufacturing jobs in the solar panel industry, science and research jobs in lithium extraction and technology development, academic and drilling opportunities for the geothermal industries, and many other opportunities that Nevada will explore.

Access federal land to make NV renewable energy capitol

The Nevada Vision Stakeholders Group recognized that our state's geography and economic development are intertwined and recommended that Nevada secure better access to federal land for renewable energy production and transmission projects. I support all efforts to make Nevada the renewable energy capital of the country. Finally, we need to improve ground connections by linking to Phoenix via I-11 and to Southern California via high-speed rail. Both are critical for transportation and tourism.

Oppose Yucca Mountain as unsafe nuclear waste storage

Yucca Mountain is the proposed site for the permanent storage of the nation's high level nuclear waste. As Attorney General, I opposed the project because the federal government could not demonstrate that the site could properly protect the health, safety and welfare of the men, women and children of Nevada. If there is a safe, alternative use for the site, I would welcome it.
