by Angie Dykema, Director of the Nevada Governor's Office of Energy
The mission of the Governor’s Office of Energy is to ensure the wise development of Nevada's energy resources in harmony with local economic needs and to position Nevada to lead the nation in renewable energy production, energy conservation, and the exportation of energy. As the new Director of the Governor’s Office of Energy (GOE), I look forward to furthering that mission.
That was the message I shared with industry officials during the Clean Energy Project’s last Energy Table conference call.
The GOE has recently implemented a couple of new, innovative programs including the Direct Energy Assistance Loan (DEAL), an interest-free energy efficiency loan program for state employees and the Nevada Clean Energy Corps (NCEC), an AmeriCorps program. The GOE has also embarked on a new project to complete a Green Bank Study.
