CARSON CITY — A new poll of Nevada residents ahead of next week’s state regulatory hearings on net metering shows strong support for the existing rooftop solar tariff and opposition to NV Energy’s proposal.
The poll conducted by Erik Iverson of Portland, Ore.-based Moore Information for the rooftop solar company SolarCity, shows that two-thirds of Nevadans support the current net metering system for rooftop solar energy customers. Another 18 percent were opposed and 15 percent had no opinion.
Net metering allows rooftop solar customers to receive a credit from NV Energy, doing business in Southern Nevada as Nevada Power, for the excess energy they produce.
