About

NVSOA-Logo-150x450The Nevada Solar Owners Association has been formed, in addition but in cooperation with other industry advocates, to represent individual citizens of Nevada.  Our primary objective is to gather and organize Nevada residents who own or lease rooftop solar generation systems.  We also encourage any other Nevada resident who has been thinking about, interested or may be or have been in the process of acquiring solar power generation for your home or business to join us.   Unlike all other current national solar advocate groups, the NVSOA will educate and represent the individual Nevada residents, versus solar industry companies.   Albeit, if you are an owner or employee of any of the many companies in Nevada, we’re happy to have you join with us as well!

We are a volunteer non-profit (501c3) organization.   This means that there are no salaries, no financial benefits to individuals or organizations.  Founding members and organizations contributing financially to NVSOA, at most, will be recognized on this website as acknowledgement of their supporting our cause and helping bring the citizens of this great state together to obtain factual information about the benefits of solar energy, net-metering and other renewable energy topics with respect to our community and environment.

17160523_mPlease note, that the NVSOA is not a political organization.  Our current interest group and board currently comprises of individuals who have a personal interest in solar investments they have made or have interest in making in solar energy within our state in the future.  Our secondary objective for this organization is to UNITE citizens of Nevada (all political parties inclusive), as we are ALL citizens of Nevada and Americans alike.  Compromise is not dead.  It’s just been hidden from us for a decade and it’s time we get back to working in the best interest of ALL and ALL alike.  Let’s work together to find a solution that is fair to NVEnergy, Net-Metering and Non Net-Metering rate payers.

Current Founding Members:

Greg Ferrante

Greg1-CaribbeanGreg is a resident of Nevada; owns and operates Blue Water Networks, a nationwide IT provider to the medical sub-specialty field of Perinatology as a virtual Clinical IT Administrator.  Blue Water Networks also provides web design, SEO and other cloud based services nationally from their operations located at the Switch Supernap Facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Greg is also a licensed real estate agent in Nevada and a member Realtor of the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors.  He also serves as the Director of Communications with the Nevada Firearms Coalition, the Nevada state affiliate of the NRA.  Greg purchased a sizable rooftop solar array that went live November 1, 2015.  Considering the decision handed down by the PUC on December 22nd, and discovering that there was no organization of residents who own rooftop solar, it was a clear choice that one needs to be formed in order to have our voice heard clearly with our state decision makers.
