Nevada utility files for approval for program to give customers alternative to rooftop solar

RENO — A Nevada utility company is seeking approval for a renewable energy program that would provide customers with an alternative to rooftop solar.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports NV Energy said Tuesday that it filed for approval with the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada for a subscription solar program.

The program allows NV Energy customers to subscribe each month to at least 100-kilowatt hour blocks of solar energy generated within the state. The energy would be generated at one of the company’s solar facilities, including one which is a joint venture with Apple.

The program would let customers meet as much as 100 percent of their energy needs with renewable energy without the cost of installing solar panels.
