Nevada Small Business Owners Support Government Investments in Clean Energy and EPA Clean Air Standards

Publisher: Small Business Majority
Published: August 15, 2012

 
Introduction

Small businesses account for a significant share of Nevada’s economy. For every one large business in Nevada, there are 101 small businesses diligently working to reenergize the state’s economy: Small firms make up 96% of the state’s employers. These entrepreneurs are doing everything they can to hire, grow and move their businesses and the state’s economy forward. As part of these efforts, recent scientific opinion polling shows that Nevada’s entrepreneurs want pragmatic, innovative policies that help guide them into a competitive, modern clean energy economy.

A majority of six in 10 respondents say government investments in clean energy play an important role in creating jobs and boosting the economy, and about the same majority also supports standards to reduce carbon pollution and other emissions even if it means an increase in utility rates. Fifty-five percent agree government should continue investing in renewable energy despite the failure of Solyndra, a renewable energy company that received a $535 million federal loan guarantee prior to filing for bankruptcy.
