On June 17, 2022, Nevada Power Company d/b/a NV Energy (“NPC”) and Sierra Pacific

Power Company d/b/a NV Energy (“SPPC” and together with NPC, “NV Energy”) filed with the

Public Utilities Commission of Nevada (“Commission”) a joint application, designated as Docket

No. 22-06035 (“Joint Application”), for approval of the first amendment to their Joint Expanded

Solar Access Program (“ESAP”) Plan.

This Notice serves only to notify the public that the Commission has received the above-referenced

filing. It is the responsibility of interested persons to review the filing and monitor the

proceedings to determine their desired levels of involvement based on how this matter may

affect their unique situations. The details provided within this Notice are for informational purposes

only and are not meant to be an all-inclusive overview of the filing. The Commission may

consider and adopt alternative proposals not contained within the filing, but which are related to

the subject matter of the filing and supported by substantial evidence.

NV Energy filed the Joint Application pursuant to the Nevada Revised Statutes (“NRS”) and

the Nevada Administrative Code (“NAC”), Chapters 703 and 704, including, but not limited to,

NRS 704.7865.

In the Joint Application, NV Energy seeks approval of two Community Based Solar Resource

(“CBSR”) projects: Freedom Park Solar in the NPC service territory and Moana Solar in the

SPPC service territory. NV Energy also seeks approval of an updated timeline for the selection

of future CBSR projects. Additionally, NV Energy states that it implemented the first enrollment

period for the ESAP in 2021. As a result of that enrollment process, NV Energy seeks approval

to amend the applications for the ESAP and extend the time for a customer to update a deficient

application, which, NV Energy contends, will benefit customers applying for the program.

Interested and affected persons may file comments or petitions for leave to intervene pursuant

to NAC 703.578 through 703.600 at either of the Commission’s offices on or before July 20,
