SB 303 protects solar consumers in Nevada

This opinion column was submitted by Margi Grein, executive officer of the Nevada State Contractors Board.

One of the many blessings of living in Nevada is the Silver State’s renowned, abundant sunshine. With an average of approximately 300 sunny days per year, Nevada offers residents the perfect setting for integrating energy-efficient solar power into their daily life. Therefore, it’s not surprising there are currently 84 solar companies employing over 7,000 workers across Nevada, according to the Solar Energy Industry Association.

However, along with the increased demand for solar energy, there’s also increased opportunities for misleading business practices in the state’s residential solar industry.

Informing and protecting Nevada consumers

In an effort to protect and inform Nevada residents, the Nevada State Contractors Board is pleased with the efforts of Senator Chris Brooks, who spearheaded the public safety initiatives of Senate Bill 303, resulting in its approval by Governor Sisolak during the 2021 legislative session. The new law aims to enhance consumer protections for all parties engaging in connecting a solar energy system in their home.
