LAS VEGAS –

Please find below a statement on the vote from the Technical Advisory Committee on Distributed Generation and Storage, part of the Governor's New Energy Industry Task Force, on the motion to grandfather for 25 years solar customers who submitted applications by 12/31/2015. This motion will now go to the full Task Force next Thursday.

Statement from Chandler Sherman, spokesperson for Bring Back Solar:

"We are thankful for the leadership of the Governor's Technical Advisory Committee on Distributed Generation and Storage for their vote to grandfather all current rooftop solar customers on the solar rules they signed up for.   The Governor's Committee includes stakeholders from the community, the utility,  and the rooftop solar industry, and this vote signals the broad support for grandfathering existing rooftop solar customers.

We encourage the New Energy Industry Task Force to accept the Committee's recommendation next week, and we are hopeful for the leadership of Governor Sandoval and the Legislature to propose and pass legislation to make today's recommendation of the Committee the law of the State."
