Nevada’s electricity market could soon see a dramatic transformation if voters approve a ballot measure this November to shift from a monopoly utility structure to a competitive retail model. According to a new poll by website The Nevada Independent, respondents voted overwhelmingly favor of introducing energy choice.
The same poll asked voters if they’d back a potential ballot measure that would raise the state’s renewable portfolio standard to 50 percent by 2030. That question also received strong support from respondents in favor of the policy change.
Polling was conducted by The Mellman Group, which sampled 600 registered voters between April 12 and 19.
