Welcome to Nevada
  • Mercury
    • State Mining Hg Control Program
      • Implementation continuing – at this point
      • Improvement in quality of emission inventory
      • Increase on knowledge/understanding of mercury emissions from mining processes
      • Fugitive emission study underway
      • Expect signficant emission reductions on new/modified units
    • EPA agreement to create Mining Hg MACT jeopardizing State’s program
      • Nevada filed request to intervene
    • State Utility Hg Control Program under development

Nevada Issues
  • Climate Change
    • Nevada a leader in renewable Energy – primarily geothermal and solar (lead the nation in geo/capita)
      • Expect 600 MW of Geothermal by 2012
      • Many additional geothermal, solar and wind projects proposed.
    • Nevada leads country in percent of new homes built ton Energy Star standards – 75% in 2008
    • Gov’s CCAC finished in 8/08

Nevada Issues
  • Climate Change (continued)
    • 2007 Legislative Session
      • State-wide GHG inventory – finished 12/08
      • Historic trends and projections to 2020
      • Mandatory reporting – working w/ TCR developing a pilot program
      • Founding member and reporter in TCR
    • Not member of WCI but official observer
    • Significant concern over CC economic impacts in light of significant State budget shortfalls

Nevada Issues
  • Ozone/Transport
    • Nevada in attainment for O3 except for Clark County
    • Designations submitted on-time – included 9-factor analyses for Clark-Nye CBSA
    • Concern over long-range transport
    • Lower standard will likely result in significant areas of Nevada as non-attainment with no significant emission sources to control
