Nevada’s renewable portfolio standard (RPS) is one of the most aggressive in the nation, requiring that 25% of retail sales come from a renewable source by 2025; the 2017 Nevada Legislature recently modified the standard to 40% by 2030, but was vetoed by Governor Sandoval due to a ballot question pending before voters in 2018.
