Is Nevada still the leading state in green energy? Does the state us nuclear power at all? - Green Mountain Energy Q&A

Question by Spikey lover: Is Nevada still the leading state in green energy? Does the state us nuclear power at all?
I can’t seem to find any websites that refer to Nevada’s main power source. I’m pretty sure that Nevada doesn’t use nuclear power at all. I need the websites you get your info off of because I’m doing this for my final English essay of the semester.

Answer by Gourdman
Nevada’s main power source is probably hydroelectricity from Hoover Dam.

I don’t know if the state has nuclear power plants, but it does host the biggest nuclear waste dump in the country at Yucca Mountain. Not too green, in my opinion.
