Tell the Nevada Legislature to bring back rooftop solar

Bring back affordable rooftop solar, returning good solar jobs to Nevada by passing legislation that ensures fair net metering rates and a strong community solar program.

Why is this important?

Designing and installing rooftop solar systems was one of the best jobs I’ve ever had. But I lost my job when government regulators killed Nevada’s rooftop solar industry. I had to leave my newborn son behind to take a job in Texas to support my family.

When I started in the solar industry, business was booming. There were close to nine thousand solar jobs in Nevada. It all changed when the Nevada Public Utilities Commission (PUC) cut net metering rates for solar customers. Overnight, the rooftop solar industry in Nevada collapsed. Around a thousand solar workers were laid off, many of us right before the holidays.

Now there’s a chance to bring rooftop solar back to Nevada, returning good jobs to the state. The Nevada state legislature will be considering bills on rooftop solar, but we have to act fast. The legislature only meets every two years, for just four months.

Please sign this petition to the Nevada Legislature now.
