Nevada is one of the sunniest states in America. Thanks to all that sun and state incentives, solar makes a lot of sense in Nevada. Nevada’s Solar Energy Systems Incentive Program requires public utilities to offer rebates to their customers who install qualifying solar energy systems on their property. Among the benefits of solar available in Nevada are property tax exemptions, net-metering programs, and renewable energy generation credits.
Nevada Net Metering for home solar
Net metering. Home solar power systems that produce up to 1MW are eligible for net metering unless those systems produce more than 150% of their peak demand. If your system produces more electricity than you consume in a billing-month month, you will receive a credit on your next bill. These credits have no expiration. Net metering in Nevada operates in a Tier system. The current Tier in 2021 is Tier 4 which gives you 75% of the retail rate.
Nevada energy efficiency incentive programs
In addition to net metering, Nevada utilities provide incentives for energy efficiency home improvements. Those incentives can vary according to the Nevada utility that serves the home. Nevada Energy offers the Powershift energy conservation program. Southwest Gas offers energy efficiency incentive programs that vary by the state you live in.
Powershift energy conservation program. The Powershift program offers incentives for appliances, free smart home thermostats with free professional installation, LED bulbs and even free home energy assessments. This program is available to Northern and Southern Nevada Energy customers.
