The next hearing to consider grandfathering of solar customers will be held on September 19.
The world’s largest emitters have committed to the global agreement, but the voluntary nature of individual national plans leaves many doubts.
The Nevada Public Utilities Commission (PUCN) has denied SolarCity’s request to participate in proceeding on whether existing residential solar customers in Nevada should have their net metering schemes “grandfathered,” after the utility added fees to the scheme at the end of 2015.
The measure is a first step to lifting significant obstacles to the development of solar in the Sunshine State.
Data published by EIA shows that less than half the district’s solar requirement was met in 2015.
The utility is seeking 75 MW of solar and other renewable energy projects from 500 kW to 20 MW in capacity under a new shared renewable energy program.
The 550kW system will serve members of a rural electric cooperative in the Shenandoah Valley, and comes in the absence of state policies for shared renewables.
This week saw three new high-profile executive appointments, Berkeley Lab’s annual report showing ongoing solar cost collapses, progress on Tesla’s acquisition of SolarCity, and more.
However, EIA data shows solar PV only making up 1.3% of total generation, a fraction of the portion in leading European nations.
