((denise valdez)) this comes just days after the public would not reconsider implementing new rates on solar customers.
hall with details on the plan. ((patrick walker)) mayor pro today... that this is a response to the public utilities commission approving a rate hike for solar customers. ross is sponsoring a city ordinace that would allow people solar... up-front costs. the city of las vegas would district... which allows homeowners who install solar -- to opt in to pay a special assessment fee on top of their taxes every six months. private investment would carry the burden of the up-front cost to install the panels on a home or business. then... the assessment fee would pay off
more than 5- thousand homes have installed solar panels since 2009 in the city of las vegas. the city has to do something... ross says... because those residents are quote "feeling betrayed" by the new rates. ((steve ross/las vegas mayor pro tem: "the new net metering rates, set by the public utilities commission, are projected to increase the basic monthly charge over 200%, and reduce the value of solar energy produced by 75%.")) ((patrick walker)) this would only apply to residents within the las vegas city limits. city officials say they have not approached other jurisdictions like the county or other cities to adopt similar plans. but... the city manager says she would be happy to do so. ((patrick walker)) so even though this doesn't change how or if homeowners are reimbursed for the energy they produce... it does allow them to take advantage of lower electricity bills. and they won't have to invest 15 or 20 thousand up- front to do so. denise...
what happens if the homeowner moves before they've paid off their panels? ((patrick walker)) the city isn't on the hook for it. property... not the homeowner. that means whoever buys the fee... which pays back the city.
