LAS VEGAS (Jan. 25, 2017) – Clean Energy Project’s executive director Jennifer Taylor released the following statement supporting NV Energy’s commitment to build an additional 200 megawatts of solar energy production to help support Apple’s Reno distribution center.
“CEP and its supporters applaud NV Energy’s continued commitment to serve Nevada businesses as they seek to power their operations with clean, renewable power. This agreement further supports the premise that large, world-leading companies are increasingly demanding energy providers to generate and distribute clean energy. This power purchase agreement further demonstrates the necessity to advance and strengthen state and local policies to advance clean energy development as a part of Governor Sandoval’s New Nevada economic development plan.
“We look forward to seeing other companies join in demanding more clean energy to power their businesses and are optimistic this trend will continue to grow Nevada’s economy and workforce.”
