August Monthly Meeting – Value of Solar Tariff (VOST) Stakeholder Meeting

As we are sure you are aware, the Public Utilities Commission (PUCN) has been charged with determining how to value solar power within the current rate structure by December 31st of this year.

Since the mission of the United States Green Building Council Nevada Chapter (USGBCNV) is to “encourage adoption of sustainable codes, implementation of sustainable construction practices for existing and new buildings, and provides access to sustainable education throughout the state” we have a substantial interest in the current net metering issue.

For this reason we are holding a Value of Solar Tariff (VOST) Stakeholder Meeting on Tuesday, August 25th from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the inNEVation Center located at 6795 Edmond St. on the 3rd Floor.  Your input on this matter is highly valued and we would appreciate your participation.

You may also contact the event chair, Louise Helton, for any additional information at (702) 592-5330 or by e-mail at [email protected]. We look forward to your participation in this important matter and feel free to forward this to other stakeholders who may be interested in providing input.
