This project will make renewable energy available and create cost savings that will directly benefit low-income customers. Each of these projects will also provide workforce training and certification benefits during construction as contemplated under the law.
“We appreciate the leadership of Assemblywoman Daniele Monroe Moreno and Senator Chris Brooks and the work of our state legislature to establish energy policies that help us bring the economic benefits of solar energy directly to low-income communities,” said Doug Cannon, NV Energy President and Chief Executive Officer. “Community-based solar projects like the one we are developing at Mojave High School will create local jobs and provide educational opportunities for the students in their own communities. This effort is about making sure every Nevadan receives benefits from the renewable energy resources we have in this state.”

Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
