The Governor Committee on Energy Choice – CEC has begun having meetings. These open public meetings are not getting renewable energy supporters attending these meetings, testifying or offering renewable energy direction.
These public open meetings are being attended by representatives who have fossil fuel, coal and nuclear energy options for consideration.
We need renewable energy supporters to join & attend the technical committees, we need to have a voice at the policy level. Any chance a High School club, college class, college organization could make one of the committees a class project? Any ideas?

Below is a link to a super graphic prepared by – Sondra Cosgrove with the League of Women Voters has put together this wonderful resources about the Governors Committee on Energy Choice and upcoming meetings.
On November 8, 2016, the voters of the State of Nevada approved Ballot Question 3 with over 70% approval: The Energy Choice Initiative, which would amend the Nevada Constitution if voters approve the initiative again in the 2018 general election, likely because the very high approval in 2016.
Question 3 would amend State policy that “electricity markets be open and competitive so that all electricity customers are afforded meaningful choice among different providers, and that economic and regulatory burdens be minimized in order to promote competition and choices in the electric energy market.”
How to de-monopolize Nevada Energy? What will be the options for energy without NV Energy? These policy issues and more will be determined at the CEC – Governor Committee on Energy Choice.
