Nevada Solar Hearings Begin

Posted by Annie Carmichael

And we’re off. This week the Nevada Legislature began a series of
hearings on renewable energy policies, including Vote Solar’s
priorities of increasing the state’s current RPS and creating a 5%
distributed generation carve-out to support rooftop solar adoption.
That would mean 375 MW of DG solar in the next ten years – an
impressive goal for a state with Nevada’s population.

With the hearings in full swing, we have filed testimony on several
Senate and Assembly renewable energy bills and are vigilantly tracking
the legislation as amendments are introduced – some friendly and some
not so friendly to solar.

It’s an incredibly busy week, but we’re keeping pace to make sure provisions for solar remain strong.
