Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske announced on Thursday that the Renewable Energy Promotion Initiative will be Question 6 on November’s ballot.

Secretary Cegavske’s announcement certifies that Nevadans for a Clean Energy Future submitted more than 112,544 signatures from registered voters throughout the state’s 17 counties in order to earn a spot on the November 2018 ballot.  

Spearheading the Question 6 initiative is Nevadans for a Clean Energy Future, a coalition of local organizations committed to lowering power bills, decreasing health care costs, and removing emissions from our air by requiring the state to double its Renewable Portfolio Standard to 50% by 2030. 

“This is a landmark day for Nevada’s families, Nevada’s air, and Nevada’s economy,” said Katie Robbins, campaign manager of Nevadans for a Clean Energy Future. “For far too long, we have done too little to take advantage of our immense solar and geothermal resources. For far too long, we have inhaled too many fossil fuel emissions.  We will change this in November when Nevadans vote YES on Question 6 to guarantee that at least half of our power comes from renewables and begin building a better future for the economic and physical health of everyone in our state.”
