Legislation has been introduced that would require Nevada’s utilities to offer net metering to customer-generators under the tariffs, rates and charges in effect prior to the enactment of S.B. 374 of 2015, which effectively ended net metering in Nevada. The new bill, A.B. 270, was introduced on March 8.
For net metering customers on a time-of-use (TOU) rate, any excess electricity carried forward would be added first to the TOU period with the highest rate before the excess electricity is added to any remaining TOU periods with a lower rate.
Significantly, additional new language in A.B. 270 specifies that electricity generated by net metering customers may not be used to reduce the customer’s monthly service charge.
