NV Energy announced plans Thursday to add six new solar projects in Nevada in what it said is the largest clean energy investment in the state’s history.
But it may drop the plans if the Energy Choice Initiative on November’s ballot, known as Question 3, passes.
A statement from NV Energy — the state’s largest electricity supplier — said if the measure passes, it has the option to not proceed to avoid “increasing the liabilities and risks to NV Energy customers.”
Question 3 would allow Nevadans to pick their own energy supplier, opening the state up as a competitive market. Supporters say the measure would bring cheaper energy options. Opponents say it would lead to higher energy bills.
