SolarGenerations Program Accepting Applications Beginning April 22

Apr 10, 2013

NV Energy’s SolarGenerations program will accept applications for the next round of solar energy projects from April 22 through 5 p.m. on May 17. Successful applicants will be eligible for rebates to help offset their installation costs for photovoltaic panels that convert sunlight into electricity. 

Residential customers, small businesses, schools and public buildings are eligible to participate in the program, which was established by the Nevada State Legislature in 2003 to encourage Nevadans to invest directly in renewable energy. Participants must be NV Energy electric customers.

At the close of the application period, if any category is oversubscribed, participants will be chosen by a lottery conducted by a third party.

Rebates for the next round of projects will range from $1.25 to $1.35 per watt for residential customers and small businesses, and from $2.80 to $3.10 per watt for schools and public buildings. Please visit the SolarGenerations webpage for a detailed description of how the incentives will be allocated.

NV Energy customers interested in applying for SolarGenerations are encouraged get more information by reviewing the Program Handbook located on the website. Anyone with questions about the application process should call toll free at (866) 786-3823 or contact the program by email at

SolarGenerations is one of several renewable energy programs offered through NV Energy’s RenewableGenerations initiative. Since the start of the program, customers have installed over 35 megawatts of solar power in Nevada.
