New Testimonies Filed Against NV Energy In Solar Dispute

At some point this year, Nevada's Public Utilities Commission is going to have to decide the fate of the solar industry in Nevada when they determine the long-term rate for solar customers in the state.

The decision is expected by the end of the year, and is the culmination of an ongoing dispute between the solar industry and the state's largest utility, NV Energy. 

NV Energy claims that the more customers have solar, the higher rates will be for non-solar customers. 

This week, however, new testimonies were filed in the proceedings with the PUC that are against NV Energy and their rate proposal - and they aren't all with the solar industry. 

Among the eight parties who filed testimony against NV Energy were the Bureau of Consumer Protection, staff from the Public Utilities Commission and the Washoe County School District.  

NV Energy declined to comment for this story.
