Nevada lawmakers looking to restore net metering, speed renewables adoption

nevada solar net metering

The Associated Press is reporting that Nevada lawmakers may have come to their senses and are putting a package of bills on the table to restore net metering rates for residential solar adopters that they had yanked away in 2015.

Momentum slowly started to build right after that controversial decision to end net metering without grandfathering in the early adopters. First, the grandfathering was allowed. Then, net metering was restored to northern Nevada residents. And now, this new package of bills.

That and other bills advanced to a full committee for consideration Wednesday.

Other measures would require solar companies to make contracts clearer, allow multiple homes to share solar energy and speed up the state’s move to renewables.
