Nevada PUC Rules In Favor Of Solar

By September 30, 2016PRESS


(September 23, 2016)

In December of 2015 the Nevada Public Utilities Commission (NPUC) set new rate structures for residential and small commercial net metering customers in NV. As you’re aware the new rates dramatically reduced the value of energy exported by rooftop solar systems, and also increased the basic service charges.

We are very pleased to reach out to you today to let you know that on September 15, 2016 the Nevada PUC reversed the previous ruling allowing homeowners with active Net Metering applications dated before January 1, 2016 the ability to revert back to a full credit Net Metering rate structure designed to “grandfather” existing solar customers into their former rate structure. Fortunately, you may be eligible to benefit from this new ruling.  What this now means is you are able to move forward with your solar project, which had previously been placed on “hold” pending this rate design issue.  In addition, due to the written laws you are able to reassign your “net metering reservation” to a new solar contractor that remained in Nevada despite the disfavoring decision early 2015.

Sunworks will continue making our services available to you and all Northern Nevada residents who qualify under the new rate structure.  We would like to invite you to contact us for assistance and pricing on your solar electric system.  We will discuss more favorable purchase options (such as owning your system for no money down), updated products, and a worry free warranty so you don’t need to ever worry about your solar new solar system again.

Customers like you are switching over to Sunworks

“When installations resume Sunworks can come and do a site survey and inform me of my purchase options. I might have my original Solar City paperwork somewhere. (but they are disqualified from completing the job due to their instant departure from our market). I would prefer to do business with a company with a better reputation and

Sunworks seems to be far superior to Solar City in that category.  Maybe it was a bit of good luck that my installation was cancelled by Solar City?”
