What Is Net Metering?

Net metering allows you to use energy generated by your purchased solar system to offset your monthly power bill. If your solar system produces more energy in a billing period than you use, your excess energy will be pushed back onto the grid and used by other electricity customers. You will earn credits for the excess energy. The credits are recorded on your electric bill. The credits will be automatically applied in the next billing period in which you consume more energy than you produce.

Net Metering Rates – Assembly Bill 405 (2017)

Effective June 15, 2017, Nevadans who choose to net meter will fall under a rate structure set by the Nevada Legislature in Assembly Bill 405 (AB 405)( https://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/79th2017/Bills/AB/AB405_EN.pdf ).

This rate structure applies to renewable energy systems of not more than 25 kilowatts, which is typical of a rooftop solar system installed at a home or small business.

The net metering rate structure is tiered and set to decrease over time as the amount of electricity produced by net metering systems hits 80-megawatt benchmarks. (See “Net Metering Rate Tiers” below for more information.)

Net metering customers will remain in the same customer class as non-net metering customers and cannot be charged any fee or charge that is different than that charged to non-net metering customers. Net metering customers will pay the same basic service charge and other fees as non-net metering customers.

Net Metering Rate Tiers

Net metering allows you to use energy generated by your purchased solar system to offset your monthly power bill. If your solar system produces more energy in a billing period than you use, your excess energy will be pushed back onto the grid and used by other electricity customers. You will earn credits for the excess energy. The credits are recorded on your electric bill. The credits will be automatically applied in the next billing period in which you consume more energy than you produce.

88% of the retail rate: The net metering rate will decrease to 88% of the retail rate when the amount of electricity produced by net metering systems under the 95% tier equals 80 megawatts. Customers who sign up to net meter under this rate will keep it for a period of 20 years at the location where the net metering system was originally installed.

Bills in Nevada Legislature

Bills introduced in the Nevada Legislature on Monday will position the Silver State as a leader in energy efficiency and renewable energy, clean-energy advocates said.

Monday was a big night for renewable energy in Carson City, with five new bills introduced designed to reduce energy use, increasing investments in homegrown renewable energy, lowering costs for consumers, and boosting the state’s economy.

Assemblyman Chris Brooks’ bill to increase the amount of energy Nevada utilities get from renewable sources, called a Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), would spur investment in the state’s solar, geothermal and wind resources. The RPS bill would replace the existing benchmark of 25 percent by 2020 with a goal of 50 percent by 2030 and 80 percent by 2040.

Additionally, bills introduced by Sen. Pat Spearman and Assembly William McCurdy would expand energy efficiency measures. These bills would widen access to cost-effective energy efficiency programs that reduce energy use and are designed to save consumers money, especially in low-income communities
