A number of cities in Nevada encourage or require
green building construction through the incorporation
of LEED certification into codes and incentives:27

Carson City

The Municipal Code of Carson City, Title 18,28

Section
6.6.4 requires that all new construction meet basic
LEED certification criteria and submit a LEED scorecard
as part of the design review. This applies to all new
residential, commercial, and mixed-construction in the
jurisdiction.

Henderson

In order to comply with the prescriptive Henderson Development Code,29

a building must earn 30-54
points depending on the type. Page 440 of the code states that among other sustainable building
practices, earning LEED Silver, Gold, and Platinum certification will award 2, 3, or 5 points, respectively.

Las Vegas

New homes in Las Vegas that pursue LEED for Homes or another green home certification, new
commercial buildings pursuing LEED for New Construction, Core and Shell, Commercial Interiors, or
Neighborhood Development, and existing commercial buildings pursuing LEED for Existing Buildings are
eligible for city-level incentives. These building owners can receive $500-$1,000 in fee reductions for
plan reviews and LEED certification, and commercial buildings can receive anywhere from $200-$10,000
in rebates for meeting specific LEED standards.30
