Step outside in Las Vegas on any summer afternoon and you can’t miss Nevada’s tremendous solar opportunity. Net metering is helping Nevadans harness the state’s plentiful sunshine to take charge of their energy bills, build healthier communities, and make the state the nation’s leader in solar jobs per capita — but now that’s at risk.

Despite overwhelming public support for solar, in December regulators at the PUCN approved changes to the net metering program that will make solar unaffordable for families and small businesses. Nevada solar customers deserve better for their valuable investment in local solar power, an investment that keeps rates low and improves health for all NV Energy customers — and we’re working with our Nevada partners to right this solar wrong.
