Nevada must give a Smart Meter that reads both ways for SOLAR

Find out if your State has this type of legislation!

"energy meter that is capable of registering the flow of electricity in two directions"

1. A utility shall offer net metering, as set forth in NRS 704.775, to the customer-generators operating within its service area.

Nevada Revised Statutes Section 704.773 - Energy - Public Utilities   <<
STARTS HERE 773 then 774 and 775

COMMENT: "meet" does not mean CERTIFIED or APPROVED or "LISTED" !!!!!!
COMMENT: All GTI's available do "anti islanding" that everyone is so worried about, it just makes sense anyway, also all are less than 5% Total Harmonic Distortion (dirty power, the only other worry).

1. A net metering system used by a customer-generator must
********** meet ********** all applicable safety
and power quality standards established by:

(a) The National Electrical Code;

(b) Underwriters Laboratories Inc.; and

(c) The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers.

2. A customer-generator whose net metering system ******* meets *******  such
safety and
quality standards must not be required by the utility to:

(a) Comply with additional standards or requirements;

(b) Perform additional tests;

(c) Install additional controls; or

(d) Purchase additional liability insurance,

arising solely from his status as a customer-generator.

Also see:

Shall not charge a customer-generator any fee or charge that would increase the customer-generator's minimum monthly charge to an amount greater than that of other customers of the utility in the same rate class as the customer-generator.
