Thanks to AB 465, which passed in 2019, Nevada utility companies will create expanded solar access programs. The solar gardens are not owned by community members directly. The bill allows three to ten community solar projects per service territory and limits projects to under 1,000 megawatts.
Watch the top state community solar programs progress in our Community Solar Tracker.
