NV Energy has filed its state mandated 2016 Renewable Portfolio Standard Annual Report with the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada, showing that the company achieved a 22.2 percent renewable credit level in southern Nevada and 26.6 percent level in northern Nevada.
This is the seventh year in a row that NV Energy has exceeded the state's renewable energy mandate. The 2016 legislated requirement is 20 percent, based on total retail energy sales.
The majority of NV Energy's renewable energy portfolio credits comes from geothermal resources, but solar resources now represent nearly a third of the total renewable energy resources. Today NV Energy customers are served by 19 geothermal energy plants with 509 MW of capacity.
