Robco Electric testified at the Legislative Committee on Energy meeting last week with some GREAT NEWS for the Silver State.
Since AB405 (the bill that restored solar to Nevada) was signed into law, solar applications have exploded! The state saw a mammoth increase in applications from 287 in 2016 to 3,308 in 2017! It is even more remarkable as the bulk of those applications were in the 2nd half of 2017 after the bill was signed. This represents an 11-fold year-over-year increase and early monthly data from 2018 indicates continued growth. Solar advocates and industry leaders say Nevada’s rooftop solar success story shows how quickly a stable policy foundation can deliver economic benefits to the state.
Here at Robco, we’ve grown our solar division back up to strength and seen several record sales months in a row. Many existing customers have opted for system expansions as their needs have changed or added solar to a their new home. Referrals are pouring in from satisfied customers as they share the great news with friends, family and coworkers.
“We are installing solar like crazy. The Robco Electric solar team has increased by 300 percent, and these are all Nevadans put back to work in the solar industry,” said Rob Kowalczik, president of Robco Electric, a Las Vegas-based company.
Once again, we extend our sincere gratitude to our elected officials and our policy partners for the tireless work on this compromise that restored an industry. We also cannot thank the people of Nevada enough for demanding the return of solar.
When we speak up, policy makers listen.
