Regional Economic Development, Nevada
Princeton started and spun off Energy Nevada as a public-private partnership to use renewable energy resources in northern Nevada as a tool to advance job growth and regional competitiveness. Because Nevada is rich in renewable energy resources, Nevadans have a unique opportunity to reduce energy costs and grow the economy while achieving energy independence. Energy Nevada has helped Nevada’s public jurisdictions and private companies accomplish these goals by creating public/private partnerships to develop energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. All the development and financial risk for these projects was taken by Energy Nevada’s private sector development partners.
