In recent months, the Nevada State Contractors Board has come into contact with multiple out-of-state solar manufacturing companies who are contracting in the State of Nevada without a license. Some of these companies are contracting with homeowners for the sale, financing, and installation of the solar system, then sub-contracting with licensed contractors for the installation of the solar equipment. The Board wishes to address its concerns with the industry, offer guidance in coming into compliance with Nevada construction laws, and seek the industry’s help in spreading the word to solar businesses looking to operate in this state. The Board encourages open dialogue and invites any interested parties to attend.
