SEIA and Vote Solar support Nevada ballot measure for more renewables

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Vote Solar Action Fund announced their support for Nevada’s Question 6, a measure on the November 6 ballot that will increase the state’s renewable energy targets to 50% by 2030.

“We are proud to work with a strong and diverse local coalition to support Question 6, the only measure on the November ballot that is guaranteed to significantly increase the amount of Nevada’s electricity that comes from homegrown renewable sources like solar energy,” said Jessica Scott with the Vote Solar Action Fund. “Overwhelming majorities of Republican, Democratic and Independent Nevadans all want more healthy, job-creating clean energy powering their communities, and it’s exciting that they’ll now have the opportunity to vote for that brighter future for their families and future generations at the ballot this fall.”

“No state has seen the profound effect that strong policy can have on jobs and economic activity than Nevada,” said Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association. “A strong RPS in Nevada is not only imminently achievable, but also will create massive jobs, stimulate economic activity and support air quality.”

Question 6 would require Nevada’s electric suppliers to generate at least 50% of their total electricity from renewable sources by the year 2030. By putting more of the state’s plentiful sunshine and other renewable resources to work for Nevada, a yes vote on Question 6 will create more jobs in the state’s growing clean energy economy, improve health by reducing harmful pollution, and build a better world for future generations.
