There’s a compelling case for companies in Nevada interested in generating their own clean, renewable energy to begin the process now. Available federal tax credits for solar energy systems are likely at their peak as is the value of any surplus power generated by a business’s solar energy system.
At the same time, there are also currently several excellent financing opportunities for government entities as well as businesses interested in “going solar.” This forum provides valuable information for businesses, government agencies, and others interested in installing solar energy systems.
(The agenda will be updated and is subject to change.)
