U.S. Senator Harry Reid
Nevada Senator Harry Reid is the Minority Leader of the United States Senate. He is the driving force behind the creation of the National Clean Energy Summit and is the leading supporter of developing Nevada’s abundant solar, wind and geothermal resources. He has consistently fought for funding and federal support for renewable energy development, especially in Nevada. In 2009, he led passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act which has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in Nevada and helped the state become the nation’s renewable energy leader. Since Nevadans first elected him to the Senate in 1986, Reid has developed a reputation as a consensus builder and a skillful legislator who takes care of Nevada first. He is currently serving in his fifth term for Nevada.
