A pending Arizona Corporation Commission ruling will decide whether to amend its recent decision on grandfathering, to alter the timing when consumers will be grandfathered under pre-existing rules. The decision will have a significant impact on the future of solar in the state.
The Nevada Public Utilities Commission’s (PUC) recent decision to grandfather 32,000 customers into pre-existing favourable rates structure has created a significant business opportunity for local installer Sunworks, and according to the company, is the next step to restoring the residential sector.
On Monday, a ruling by Nevada Public Utilities Commission (PUC) chairman and presiding officer Paul A Thomsen barred SolarCity from intervening in upcoming proceedings concerning the grandfathering of more than 20,000 rooftop solar customers.
Nevada’s largest utility, NV Energy, made a filing yesterday with the Nevada Public Utilities Commission to return existing rooftop solar consumers to the previous, more favourable rates for the next 20 years.
