Southwest Gas is a firsthand witness to Nevada’s growth over the past 70 years. As a company, we are committed to the continued development of our cities and pursuing equitable and sustainable energy solutions that protect our state’s valuable resources — and build on the significant growth potential our communities have already realized. 

Opportunities to continue creating jobs and diversifying our economy rely on access to a suite of reliable, affordable, and sustainable energy sources and infrastructure — including access to natural gas. Energy is top of mind for businesses and industries; and our community is positioned to address the energy needs of tomorrow and be a top choice for companies looking to relocate. 

“We have a long-term vision to fuel a balanced and sustainable energy future that paves the way for economic growth, industry, and jobs — supporting the economic pathways and quality of life for all in our communities,” said Justin Brown, President of Southwest Gas. “We remain steadfast in our commitment to safely delivering reliable energy to our customers while supporting our communities’ growth.” 

Demand for natural gas remains high among homebuilders and business owners – bringing the joys of a home cooked meal to our tables and the feeling of a warm shower to our mornings — while also supporting the small businesses and restaurants in our communities. Nevada requires the deployment of various energy sources for industry applications, tourism, and hospitality, to optimize home and building design and operation, and fuel transportation systems while remaining focused on climate goals. 

As technology martures, Southwest Gas is committed to helping build the bridge toward the greater availability of renewable energy options, like renewable natural gas and hydrogen. Existing gas infrastructure — in which our state has already invested — plays a critical role in delivering these future renewable fuels, diversifying our economy’s energy portfolio, and reducing economy-wide emissions. 

“We are committed to being a key part of Nevada’s climate solution — supporting a truly resilient and secure energy future for all Nevadans, in alignment with the state’s energy goals,” said Laura Nelson, vice president of Sustainability and Public Policy for Southwest Gas. 

Southwest Gas is excited about the balanced, diverse, and resilient energy future that we are working together to create in Nevada. We believe Nevada is positioned to drive energy systems and innovations that uplift our communities and fuel economic growth. At Southwest Gas, we are committed to making the places customers, businesses, and employees call home stronger and more sustainable.
