The Public Utility Commission (PUC) voted to kill solar power here in Nevada! With so many bright days in Nevada, there is no place better to have solar power! With an average of 294 sunny days a year, Nevada is missing out on a BIG opportunity to contribute to Green Energy!
Why would they vote to kill it? Part of what makes this so crazy is two of the PUC members are lobbyist for NV Energy. NV Energy has a monopoly on power in Nevada and is owned Warren Buffet! It gets crazier… Warren Buffet donates to Democratic causes, such as Green Energy on the Democratic side of house, but with a mostly Republican government in Nevada, you have to ask “Why would Republicans kill a Green Energy Project?” Follow the Money! This is Outrageous!
This is old school Nevada politics at its worst!
Over 12,000 people in Nevada, who have opted for solar panels on their homes, will pay dramatically more for energy than those with out panels! This does not make since! There were over 3,700 solar installs in Vegas in 2015, and over 5,000 since 2009. This represents less than 2% of rooftops in Las Vegas, imagine the possibilities of Nevada being a Green Energy Contributor if it only made since for the homeowners to have it installed! And what about those homeowners who were expecting what they were promised? Will they be “grandfathered in”? It does not look like it!Warren Buffet once said “Honesty is a very expensive gift, don’t expect it from cheap people.” Makes you wonder a bit doesn’t it! Solar customers are not looking for a gift, they are simply looking to better the environment and for a return on what they have invested in.
Who is this good for?
Is this good for the PUC? Their friends? Their bottom line? NV Energy? I can tell you, it’s NOT GOOD FOR YOU!
