Nevada Governor Signs Bill that Accelerates Construction of Greenlink Transmission Network
Governor Sisolak signed a bill on June 2nd that will speed up construction of the $2-billion 525-kV Greenlink transmission network. The electrical infrastructure project will allow access to remote renewable energy resource areas while connecting Nevada's eastern, western and southern regions. The bill includes a $100 million investment earmarked for electric charging stations. This all jibes with the state's mission of 100% clean energy by 2050.
“Clean energy is intrinsically linked to Nevada’s job recovery and economic opportunities,” the governor said.
Under the bill, which gained final State Assembly and Senate approval last month, Nevada's investor-owned utility NVEnergy must bump up completion dates of both phases of the transmission project by no later than Dec. 31, 2028, This will put the project three years ahead of schedule.
