Solar Companies Return To Nevada With Promise Of Job Creation

By

In late 2015, Nevada made it financially tougher for solar rooftops to be installed. With lower compensation and higher charges, SolarCity was forced to halt their service in the state and it affected over 2,000 jobs. All those opportunities have opened up again after governor Brian Sandoval signed energy bills that brought back normal credits this week.

Utility companies now have to give full credit back to customers that are sending energy back to the grid from their solar rooftops. The prior bill that was signed into effect nearly two years ago didn’t make this a requirement. It was known as the dissolving of net metering, which ultimately creates a monopoly for utility companies. They could also charge residents with solar panels and rooftops additional fees
