For many of Nevada's commercial buildings, energy is the single largest operating expense. Commercial buildings can cut energy usage and costs by up to 40% by investing in clean energy measures such as better insulation, more efficient heating and air conditioning, electric vehicles, and solar, while also making the air building occupants breathe healthier and the building more comfortable and safe.
