The article reports that the Nevada state's 2001 law to encourage development of renewable energy is beginning to produce results, but developers in this mineral-rich state still are seeking the key to unlock the gates to renewable riches. Ormat Nevada Inc. began construction early this year on the 20-MegaWatt, Galena #1 geothermal powerplant at Steamboat. The state's Renewable Portfolio Standards act requires electrical utilities to increase their use of renewable energy by 2% every third year until their portfolio reaches 15% of total energy sales by 2013.
