Seal of the State of Nevada

WHEREAS, energy efficiency is the cheapest, quickest, and cleanest way to meet Nevada's energy needs and reduce utility bills for residents and businesses in our communities; and

WHEREAS, smarter energy use reduces the amount of electricity needed to power our lives, which helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions that can harm our health, pollute our air, and warm our climate; and

WHEREAS, cutting energy waste saves U.S. households billions of dollars on their utility bills every year, up to $500 per household from appliance efficiency standards alone; and

WHEREAS, approximately 11,000 Nevadans work in the energy efficiency sector in local, family-sustaining, clean energy jobs that can't be outsourced, and increasing America's recovery efforts by ramping up energy efficiency efforts will sustain and create more jobs; and

WHEREAS, a nationwide network of energy efficiency groups and partners has designated the first Wednesday in October as national annual Energy Efficiency Day; and

WHEREAS, in the Silver State we can continue to contribute to our sustainability efforts by learning more about energy efficiency and practicing smarter energy use in our daily lives;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, STEVE SISOLAK, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF NEVADA, do hereby proclaim October 6, 2021, as
