A shouting match breaks out at a meeting on solar energy. Talks aren't over just yet.
We couldn't believe how emotional things got. This was all about net metering.
In December, thePublic Utilities Commission made some big changes increasing the base service charge for southern Nevada solar customers and paying out less for the energy customers sell back off their rooftop solar panels.
Hundreds of jobs are being cut because of this.
Now, several groups want to press the pause button and talk about changing the rates.
Today they're talking about that.
A lot of the anger is because the commission says a lot of the issues raised should've come up months ago.
A final decision about the motion to stay won't come until next week.
