Energy conserved

On March 1, the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada (PUCN) postponed a proposal to cut 38 percent—approximately $22 million—from NVEnergy’s energy efficiency program. NVEnergy provides rebates and grants to residents and organizations implementing renewable energy resources into their homes and facilities. The company’s program also provides weatherization assistance to low-income families. NVEnergy’s program is estimated to save energy consumers $71 million.

PUCN’s decision was delayed until March 16 due to public outcry.
