"We thank Chairman Jeremy Susac for his proposal to extend net metering, and applaud his leadership in proposing tangible solutions to bring solar back to Nevada. As the Chairman acknowledged, under the new rates the solar industry is 'drowning' and is unable to do business in the state. We're grateful the Task Force recognized the urgent need to grandfather existing net metering consumers, and we look forward to seeing future proposals that protect consumer choice and allow Nevada to regain its rightful place as a clean energy leader."
