The Nevada Solar Owners Association (a non-profit organization) is now forming to bring together all owners of solar power generation systems. Nevada has been a rising star over the last few years, clearly poised to be number one in the country of the solar energy market for distributed power generation systems – providing clean renewable energy from the abundance of year round sun in our state. There are national organizations who represent solar energy nationwide and have attempted to help represent solar interests in Nevada, but, we need local state support in order to be more successful for both our environment and our solar power investments. Join thousands of Nevadans so that we can become a voice clearly heard in Carson City as well as the PUC, to restore and preserve our investments and rights to free renewable energy!
In a recent disappointing upset, the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada (PUCN), voted 3-0 to effectively reverse what is known as Net Metering (or NEM-1), which is a 1 for 1 exchange of credits for excess energy produced and sent back into the power grid. While the impression was the creation of a new net metering program (NEM-2) after the original limit was reached, it was a shocking surprise to find out that the entire program would be REVERSED and REVISED into what basically appears to kill the value of the net metering program altogether.
We are currently seeking support from private individual and small business owners of solar generation systems who utilize Net Metering as a critical part of your investment in solar energy. If you have solar panels installed by an alternative utility such as SolarCity, Sunrun, etc – those organizations (the companies) are represented by other national advocates, however, your voice added to ours would certainly help the overall cause to regain and retain the value for all of our solar power systems.
