Nevada Passes Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Bills

June 15, 2007

Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons has signed two energy bills that provide a range of incentives for energy efficiency and renewable energy, require high efficiency light bulbs to be sold in the state, and qualify small-scale distributed renewable energy systems to employ net metering.

On June 14, Gibbons signed Senate Bill 437, which, among other things:

Gibbons also signed Assembly Bill 178 the same day. This bill will allow distributed renewable energy systems 1 megawatt (MW) or smaller to qualify for net metering.

The bill would also require high-efficiency light bulbs to be sold in Nevada. Nevada is the first state in the nation to pass such light bulb legislation. The lighting standard is estimated to save $1.3 billion once all the old incandescent bulbs have been replaced.
