At this time last year, legislators were gleefully talking about Nevada becoming the Saudi Arabia of solar. But for all the talk, we're still powered by carbon. So what's the state of solar in Nevada? Are more solar plants in the pipeline? And where do we rank compared to other states? We talk with one solar expert who has been promoting renewable energy since Jimmy Carter put solar panels on the White House. Plus, the official who gives projects the green light tells us who's looking to build in Nevada.

Guests:
Denis Hayes, Pres and CEO, Bullitt Foundation
Stephanie Tavares, Reporter, LV Sun
Greg Helseth, Renewable Energy Project Manager, Southern NV, BLM
