The Public Utilities Commission of Nevada recently voted to change net metering rates for solar customers due a cost shift to non-solar customers.

While the solar industry disputes any cost shift, the PUCN states Southern Nevada solar customers receive an average $623 annual subsidy from non-solar neighbors.

According to NV Energy, that amounts to $1.08 per month for a single family residential customer in Southern Nevada.
