Steve Sisolak on Energy & Oil

 

 


We're poised to lead the world on clean energy storage

Nevada is already a leader in renewable energy, generating billions of dollars in investment and employing tens of thousands of our people. Now, we are perfectly poised to lead the world in energy storage. To reach these ends, I will work with the Legislature to pass a bold energy bill establishing our commitment to increased transmission, storage, and distribution of all forms of clean energy. Passing this bill will create good paying construction jobs & help in our fight against climate change.

Renewable energy makes business sense

Nevada used to lead the nation in producing renewable energy. Sadly, we've fallen behind. I strongly support the goal of achieving a minimum of 50% in renewable energy by 2030. And I know we can meet these standards without raising the cost of electricity for the ratepayers of our state. Allowing Nevada to lead when it comes to renewable energy isn't just good for job growth or energy rates, it helps preserve and protect Nevada's incredible natural beauty.

Climate change poses a direct threat to our communities

Q: Consider climate change a critical threat? Should government limit the levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere to combat climate change?

Adam Laxalt (R): No. Joined appeal of Obama Clean Power Plan. "Oppose efforts to impose or expand costly and burdensome mandates on energy providers, which only lead to higher prices that hurt Nevada's families."

Steve Sisolak (D): Yes. "Climate change is real and poses a direct threat to our environment and communities." Work as a state to uphold Paris Climate Agreement & Clean Power Plan.

Q: Support Question 6, the initiative requiring utilities to provide 50% of energy from renewables by 2030?

Adam Laxalt (R): No specific stand but opposes "costly and burdensome mandates on energy providers."

Steve Sisolak (D): Yes. "Want Nevada to lead the world in clean energy."
