Nevada Public Benefit Funds for Energy Efficiency
- The Public Utility Commission has been collecting the Nevada Fund for Energy Assistance and Conservation (NFEAC) since August 2001. The NFEAC is funded through a mill tax assessment paid by residential and commercial customers of the seven regulated utilities in the state. It generates about $12 million annually for low-income energy assistance and conservation. Twenty-five percent is distributed on a quarterly basis to the Nevada Housing Division, the state WAP grantee, for energy efficiency measures. During SFY 2010, the weatherization program expended $2 million in UEC funds, serving 868 low-income homes.
