Nevada reaches cap on net metering; solar fight continues


CARSON CITY, NV (FOX5) –

Nevada has reached a statewide cap on net metering, which permits clients with solar panels in the house to sell excess energy back to the energy company.

NV Energy indicated late Thursday that it had actually gotten enough applications from potential rooftop solar consumers to amount to 235 megawatts, which was the limit negotiated this spring during the legal session. NV Energy is still accepting applications and will continue connecting individual solar setups into the grid, however individuals who use now that the cap has been reached will certainly go through interim rates that are expected to be embraced on Wednesday. Roof solar companies say NV Energy’s proposed brand-new rate structure will certainly kill the industry in Nevada, and state they were misinformed about how quickly the state would reach the cap.
