Many people have invested in solar heating in this area, however due high heat in summer and freezing temperatures at night in the winter most systems have been removed. Solar panels to gather energy is now more popular but very seldom used. Millions of dollars have been spent in Nevada to promote geothermal enery but so far it hasn't been self supporting or cost effective.
In the remote areas of Nevada, solar panels and wind turbines are combined with back up generators to provide electricity where it is not avalable.
