If you have trouble, please call your Robco Solar Consultant. With your permission, we can log into your account and retrieve your bill. You’ll need to supply us with your Username and Password.
If you do not have a power bill available yet, please log into NV Energy and grab these two screen shots for us.
NV Energy requires that the Solar Net Metering Application have the info below. We usually pull it off of the bill, but for new services, we need to use an alternate method.
Once you log in, from the drop-down menu choose Profile and Preferences: (exact spelling of your name and address as it appears on bill and account number)
The goal with solar is to match your power supply from your new system to your power demand in your house. You want to hit the perfect balance. Not too big and not too small – just the right size for YOUR needs.
Your solar system will be sized based on how much power you used in the last 12 months OR by square footage for brand new construction or a new-to-you house. This is why every solar company you talk to is going to ask for a copy of your most recent power bill or ask you what your square footage is.
If you want more solar panels than NV Energy will approve, an Electrical Engineer has to justify that demand with a Load Calculation Letter. NV Energy will only allow PROVABLE requests for oversizing. You won’t be allowed to oversize your system because you think you’re going to get an electric car in 4 years, but you would be allowed to oversize with a signed contract for a swimming pool or a new AC is installed on the garage. Remember, your system should be sized to make the amount of power you need. Buying extra panels now for a load you’ll maybe add in 2 years is not a smart investment.
Yes, you can add panels later! Once the system is turned on, you may add panels anytime you like. The most common reasons to add on are a getting new pool or spa, buying an electric car or having someone new move into your house.
