WASHINGTON — Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm will join Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak and congressional lawmakers in Las Vegas this week to promote clean energy opportunities for the state and the president’s jobs plan currently wending its way through Congress, an administration official said Tuesday.
Granholm will meet with Sisolak and Rep. Steven Horsford, D-Nev., and clean energy advocates on Thursday and hold a roundtable discussion.
The Nevada Legislature passed clean energy legislation that would require NV Energy to complete its Greenlink Nevada project by 2028, three years ahead of schedule. That project would link population centers in the state with a transmission grid of 525-kilovolt lines.
The legislation would also expand electric vehicle charging infrastructure in the state.
Sisolak has not yet signed the bills.
