Nevada's PUC Joins Coalition On Climate Change

Nevada’s Public Utilities Commission will join a coalition of utility commissions in efforts to address concerns about climate change. 

Commissions in California, Oregon, and Washington formed the Joint Action Framework over a decade ago. The group aims to reduce carbon emissions by updating energy practices and developing low-carbon energy technologies.

PUCN says it’s “excited to join the other Western Commissions in a cooperative effort to promote deployment of cost-effective, reliable and clean energy resources and infrastructure, while recognizing the unique approach of each state to addressing these difficult challenges.”
