Nevada PUC Approves Grandfathering for NV Energy Solar Customers

The Public Utilities Commission of Nevada has approved a plan to restore retail net-energy metering rates to the 32,000 existing solar customers of NV Energy Inc.'s utility subsidiaries. The commission's December 2015 and January decisions, which altered the compensation of existing solar customers on the systems of Nevada Power Co. and Sierra Pacific Power Co., resulted in legal challenges and astonished many observers across the nation. The agreement, approved Sept. 16, sets out a tariff to grandfather those customers for an additional 20-year period. NV Energy's utilities, the PUC staff, the state attorney general's Bureau of Consumer Protection and SolarCity Corp. filed a stipulation agreeing to the plan on September 13. The special 'NMR-G rider' includes provisions and conditions that were in effect with the net metering rider schedule that became effective on April 30, 2014. The commission amended the rider to state that it will apply to customers beginning December 1, 2016, and will continue until the end of 2036. There was little discussion, and the three commissioners unanimously approved the stipulation and tariff. Under the rider, the utility will measure the net energy produced or consumed during the billing period and carry forward any excess production to future billing periods as an energy credit. If time-of-use rates apply, the credits will apply to the same time-of-use period in which the energy was generated. Customers who have already interconnected net-energy metered systems will automatically receive service under previously existing rates, but those who have not yet interconnected, but had reservations to do so by December 31, 2015, before the PUC eliminated net-energy metering tariffs, will be given until February 28, 2017, to 'opt in' for the grandfathered rates and until February 28, 2018, to construct their distributed solar systems.
