NV Clean Energy Initiative

CHR, Inc. has partnered with the Nevada Clean Energy Initiative to provide information on the ways and benefits of providing clean energy to the State of Nevada.

WHAT IS CLEAN ENERGY?

Clean energy is a power that doesn't create pollution as a side-effect. Dirty energy, on the other hand, is created by burning fuels that create pollution, which is bad for our health and environment. Clean energy can also be called "renewable energy" and we also include energy efficiency as a related program because it reduces the use of dirty polluting energy.

Renewable Energy is power generated from natural resources – such as sunlight, wind, and geothermal heat – which are naturally replenished. Dirty energy comes from limited resources which are gone once burned. Renewable energy technologies include solar power, wind power, and hydroelectricity.

Energy Efficiency is using less energy to do the same things. For example, insulating a home allows a building to use less heating and cooling energy to achieve and maintain a comfortable temperature. Also, using compact fluorescent (CFL’s) and LED light bulbs requires less energy than an incandescent bulb to produce the same amount of light.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CLEAN ENERGY?

Generating electricity from renewable sources and conserving energy through efficiency has many benefits:

1. Creates jobs – The clean energy economy in the United States is putting more and more Americans to work. Solar and wind energy are among the fastest-growing industries in the nation, employing hundreds of thousands of Americans in positions with good wages. Energy efficiency technology and retrofits also employ millions, and many of these jobs are local and can’t be outsourced, improving the economy.

2. Stabilizes and lowers energy costs – The price of renewable energy has dropped a lot over the last few years and is now competitive with dirty energy prices. While the supply and cost of fossils fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas fluctuate, the cost of operating clean energy facilities is constant and resources like the sun and wind are free. Energy efficiency lowers energy use which lowers energy bills.

3. Improve public health and environmental quality – The air and water pollution emitted by coal and natural gas plants are linked to breathing problems, neurological damage, heart attacks, and cancer. Solar and wind energy produce none of that pollution. Fossil fuel pollution is also causing a devastating change in the climate – and we feel the effects of it here at home and across the globe. We're constantly setting heat records, wildfires, and droughts in the West while seeing more intense weather patterns generally around the world including floods, hurricanes, and more. Again, clean energy doesn't produce the carbon pollution that is warming our planet.

4. Provides a more secure energy supply – Our old model of energy production, centralized in big power plants, is vulnerable to outages and even attacks. A few key transmission lines or power plants going down could put major cities out of commission. Clean energy adds new power sources, and by having

solar panels on individual roofs, we create a power system that is more reliable and resilient. With finite fossil fuels, some of which are imported from other countries, diversifying with clean energy makes the US more self-reliant.
