The question is not whether you should still buy solar in Reno Nevada, but rather why you shouldn’t. The answer to the latter of those questions is far shorter than the prior. The question of whether to buy solar in Reno, however, remains valid. As a company that is striving to help people get the most accurate information, we say yes.
Reno Nevada Net Metering Changes
One of the most concerning changes used to be NV Energy’s change in net metering rates. The state of Nevada has since moved back to a more solar-friendly model, re-instituting net metering returns similar to those during solar’s hey day.
We are here to tell you that yes, solar is still an energy solution that will save you money. It is true that NV Energy’s net metering rates used to impose challenges for people wanting to go solar. This didn’t make a whole lot of sense for NV Energy at the time of the changes because Reno is one of the sunniest cities on the planet, making solar an extra profitable and wise investment.
The net metering road bump didn’t stop solar from progressing in Nevada, and neither should any of the numerous objections people make when they don’t understand solar. In fact, this transition has helped weed out the companies that won’t be here to help you for years to come. Which is actually better for the market’s image and customer satisfaction.

Our solar savings calculator for the city of Reno helps in this financial approximation. If you want to know what your actual savings are, you will need to get a quote and meet with a solar consultant and/or get your free solar assessment for your Nevada residence.
Get A Reno NV Solar Quote
When you get a solar quote, you are able to see what the savings for the size of system you will need for your home are. These numbers will vary from company to company, which is why it is best to look around. Don’t stop short of at least 3 quotes. This’ll help you form your questions and cue you in to who has the best options.
First and foremost, looking around allows you to see which company has the best price. Getting an in-person quote also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and perhaps even get explanations with some of your installer’s in-office equipment or how the system will work in relation to your own home.
This one-on-one experience is key in helping you decide if a company is going to meet your needs. An in-person solar quote will allow you to learn more about the company without feeling pushed into a sale.
You are the best judge of what you need. That is why our goal is to give you the most accurate information so your decision is as informed as possible.
Give Solar Africa: If You Go Solar with Us in Nevada, We Finance a Solar Array in Uganda
Although we are a solar installer, our goal first and foremost is to help people establish energy independence, educational opportunity, and economic empowerment. This is why we use part of every sale to finance a microloan in Africa.
Over the years, we have seen immense success in our mission to fight against energy poverty and provide better educational opportunity to children in areas that need it most. We have increased the amount of light that people are able to use.
We have averted black carbon emissions with each kerosene lamp we throw out. To date, we have given children over 4 million additional hours of extra study time in the country of Uganda alone. That’s enough to facilitate the sum of a small university’s total learning over a four-year time span!
When someone opts in to a solar installation from Go Solar Group, we rejoice; not only because you are going to save money, but also because of the children in Africa that get more time to do their homework and a chance to succeed. This is just one example of why we do what we do. Solar is an incredibly powerful equalizing and empowering force.
Solar energy is the key to empowerment. By getting solar through Go Solar Group, you are helping others save money and live a healthier life.
Your purchase helps us walk the walk, and, perhaps, ‘become the change that you want to see in the world’ as Gandhi admonished we should.
