Certified Energy Plus New Homes are built to exceed the energy efficiency of a standard home by 30 percent - doubling ENERGY STAR standards.
NV Energy is providing an incentive for its residential customers, small commercial, nonprofit, school and other public customers to install solar water heaters on their homes and facilities. Residential customers with an electric or gas water heater can qualify for incentives through this program.

Assembly Bill 178, adopted in June 2007, established efficacy* standards for general purpose lights sold in the state of Nevada. The bill set the required efficacy at 25 lumens per watt (lm/W) of electricity, and that standard will be in effect between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2015. According to the legislation, the Director of the Office of Energy must adopt regulations to establish a new minimum standard to take effect on January 1, 2016, which must exceed the provisional standard of 25 lm/W.
