SEIA Testifies to NV Legislature on NEM Reinstatement

WASHINGTON – (RealEstateRama) — SEIA’s Sean Gallagher testified before the Energy Subcommittee of the Nevada Legislature’s Commerce and Labor Committee on Monday, proposing that the subcommittee amend the bill that killed the state’s net metering policy in 2015.


He argued that contrary to the stated goals of the legislation, which included encouraging private investment in renewables and stimulating economic growth, jobs were lost and businesses left the state. Sean asked for the subcommittee’s support in re-establishing the state’s burgeoning solar industry and amend the existing bill to spark real job growth in Nevada.


The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA®) is the driving force behind solar energy and is building a strong solar industry to power America through advocacy and education. As the national trade association in the U.S., we represent all organizations that promote, manufacture, install and support the development of solar energy.
SEIA works with its 1,000 member companies to champion the use of clean, affordable solar in America by expanding markets, removing market barriers, strengthening the industry and educating the public on the benefits of solar energy.
