Guest Blog: Congresswoman Dina Titus

Nevada is fulfilling its potential to become a center for renewable energy production in the West. But that progress is in jeopardy unless Congress acts to maintain incentives for renewable energy development. As we observe Earth Day in April, Congress needs to act now to preserve the jobs created and the environmental progress we have made over the past decade.

Nevada leads the nation in jobs created per capita in the solar industry and are second in the nation in energy produced from geothermal. There were 3,500 jobs created in Nevada’s solar industry in 2014, a 146 percent increase in a year. More jobs were created in Nevada than in any other state except California. With 106 solar companies employing 5,900 people in our state, the independent nonprofit Solar Foundation now ranks Nevada seventh in the nation in total jobs in the solar industry. Nevada has long been a leader in geothermal development, and we now have 20 geothermal plants capable of generating more than 425 megawatts of clean power, second only to California.
