1 Sun Solar in the News

Here’s a few local Las Vegas, Nevada online newspaper articles 1 Sun Solar is mentioned in:

Progress of Nevada’s renewable sector left uncertain after session

“We had opportunities, and we receded,” renewable energy advocate Louise Helton said of the session that adjourned June 6.

Particularly disheartening to Helton was the passage of Assembly Bill 150, which amended state law to allow electric providers to use the implementation of energy-efficiency measures to count toward the required 15 percent renewable energy portfolio standard for 2011 and 2012.

A member of the U.S. Green Building Council and the owner of the 1 Sun Solar energy installation company, Helton views the passage of AB150 as a step backward.

“We have part of the renewable-energy portfolio not needing to be renewable energy,” she said. “When you look at other states, they are gearing up. We are losing ground.”

But solar building and incentive programs are costly for utility customers, Tony Sanchez, senior vice president of government and community strategy for NV Energy, pointed out.

“Energy efficiency is the cheapest way to meet the portfolio standard.”

Response from tweets has Las Vegas chamber officials chirping

Louise Helton took a gamble by buying space at the expo, but was pleasantly surprised. The owner of 1 Sun Solar barely had a moment to talk during the event.

“We have a booth way in the back, and we’ve been busy all day,” Helton said. “And we are not even giving away anything.”
