The Club at ArrowCreek

Speaker: Anne Marie Cuneo,
Director of Regulatory Operations, Nevada Public Utilities Commission
Net metering is a practice that allows the owners of solar energy systems to distribute energy they produce back to the utility, and to be compensated with credits against future energy use the solar owner may need to purchase from the utility.
Net metering policies are a highly contested topic in many states. We will discuss the history behind net meting policies and the hidden and explicit subsidies that occur when designing utility rates, where “fair” doesn’t always mean “equal”.
