Join Us in Prayer for Our Nation
"To join us for the call center. I'm John. Stonestreet, this is great for. Christians should be among those most deeply concerned about the divided state of our nation left versus right mass. No mass reopened versus stay at home virtual school versus in person raised politics police abortion religious liberty not to mention the remainder of what certain to be brutal presidential campaign. The issues we face range from essential to non-essential on essential matters, we should mourn deception and vowed to fight. For the truth on non essential matters we should mourn and hope to overcome division God's people can neither stay on the sidelines nor run away from the struggle instead knowing there is no hope other than Christ. We must ask onto mercifully powerfully mobilize us is people to advance that which is true and good if Christians are to speak with clarity courage and confidence and to be the. Of Truth and love and a world of Noise Echo Chambers, then we'll need to be prepared but even perfectly crafted arguments cannot replace Shut Colson would say the church being the Church speaking cannot replace being and to be the people that God calls us to be right now, we must rely on prayer. That's why each and every Wednesday morning between all the twelfth of November, the fourth, and that's the morning after the twenty twenty election the Colson center will be hosting a national prayer time the a Webinar we want you to join US each and every week to pray first and foremost for God's mercy. But that he would revive his church that he would bring about a renewal of righteousness that he would empower us to courageously offer protection for the most vulnerable to champion reconciliation across our deepest divides and that he would. Allow us to be instruments in the sustaining of religious freedom and the recovery of the family in our nation. Each prayer time will feature a devotional challenge and a prayer by Christian leaders such as Oz Ganesh Johnny Eric's Totta focus on the family President Jim Daly Woodside Bible Pastor Chris Brooks and watermark pastor Todd Wagner as well as at Stecher from the Billy Graham Center and the Heritage Foundation President Keiko James Now due to the limited capacity of zoom there will be limited live spots each week available to everyone who registers However, each weeks recording will be sent to anyone who registers so come to breakpoint dot org for more details and Fiji's Paul tells us that we don't wrestle against flesh and blood but against the rulers, the authorities, the cosmic powers over this present darkness against the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places when people see us their enemies, it's difficult to remember that they aren't our enemies. So what we need to do as Paul Instructs this put on the former of God Faith Truth Righteousness Peace Salvation the word of God. And he says praying at all times in the spirit with all prayer and supplication keeping alert with all perseverance making supplication for all the Saints, and the Book of acts the earliest church activity we read off is prayer thousands of people from completely different backgrounds came together in one mind one art in prayer with one accord. That's what acts chapter one, verse fourteen and Chapter Two versus forty. Two seven says than what happened with the Holy Spirit moved in the world was never the same in fact, every spiritual revolution in history. With some kind of unified persevering prayer the very first outpouring of the holy. Spirit. In acts to the great awakenings, the businessman's revival and the Welsh revival story after story, you read the same thing people prayed God's spirit moved on the other hand every Christian history who was able to persevere and righteousness. Temptation or persecution without seeing revival in their lifetime they also did that through prayer. Our prayer of course cannot force God's hand but are only way forward is to seek his will together are purse can't control God. But we can invite him to change our hearts and minds including our own gods always working in our lives whether we realize it or not. But something powerful and world changing happens when people pray for God's spirit to move. The, Great Jonathan Edwards urged his fellow pastors to quote be much in prayer and fasting both in secret and with one another it is God's will. He said that the prayers of his saints shall be great and the principal means of carrying on the designs of Christ's kingdom in the world. When God has something to accomplish for his church, it is with his will that there should precede it the extraordinary prayer of his people Paul even tells us to pray for all things at all times for sesame chapter five specifically for our leaders both spiritual and secular as what the

"Let's explain that just a little bit because you. MINTON ministering to mothers as well and others and the whole family issue in the inner city is one that is incredible challenge not only four those who are trying to you get their hands on whether education whether it be social services or whatever but the church itself what are some of the issues there and then just pointed how how is your church addressing some of those yeah so I I write a lot about the family in in interestingly interestingly enough when I wrote about the family are quoted. Some of the stuff that bill cosby was doing at the time you talk about how the world has changed since I wrote the book <hes> Bill Cosby was the quintessential African American father in the eighties. This was the family that not only African American celebrated on Cosby Show but broadly America for many years running the cosby show was the pitcher of the American family a dad who was a doctor Mama was a lawyer kids who may mistakes as with all mistakes were fixed in twenty six and a half minutes every week and it was a perfect example of the family well since then a lot of those images have replaced by dysfunctionality throughout America. We celebrate dysfunction now. The modern family has replaced cosby family. <hes> Roseanne Barr show and others came along and celebrated dysfunction and I think that continues to drive Neil Azam this thought of desperation hopelessness throughout throughout the African American community there are dropping marriage rights marriage is becoming less and less popular. I quote in the Book Brady Goodwin who is a hip hop artist. He writes a book that is entitled the death of hip hop marriage morals and in it. He says this he says it on page <hes> one four in a book it says marriage is no longer designer necessary we the avenue a whole generation of kids were growing up many of which never saw their parents married at all. The neighborhood that I'm bill has seventy percents amount had a household without men that are there so you're asking. What are we doing to address it? Well a couple of things that we're doing to address it. We are celebrating the rise of marriage ministries that are targeting people of Color ethnic minorities. There are so many ministries that are doing a great job. The discipleship is the simple answer. It is discipleship at an early age helping the take boys and girls and walking with them. There are no quick fixes in this is true across America specifically leave true in the inner city. We like to say this bill about inner cities that went abroad. Her America has a cold. The Inner City has a fluke whatever problem you have in abroad America. It seems to be exacerbated in inner city. We we also have to work at criminal justice reform because far too many men of color are incarcerated should not have been incarcerated. There were so many tough on crime laws that were passed. They did more harm than good three strike policy as an example of that where someone could go away for drug possession for life after being caught three times <hes> and what you found is that not not enough data was done on the healthcare desserts that existed in urban America so a lot were doing drugs and passing those drugs along as a way of self medicating. I know a lot of <hes> men men who are serving Christ today that were dealing with anxiety disorders that we're dealing with <hes> depression or other mood disorders that we're using marijuana and other <hes> narcotics as a way coping with their condition back when before marijuana becomes legalized and an industry these were men who were being put in jail young men who were being incarcerated incarcerated for life and so we have to analyze criminal justice the other thing I will say about criminal justice reform is that we've created a permanent second class a permanent poverty class for those who've done their time guy who hopefully have come through the prison system and want to have a second chance life so one of the things we've all been on our campus at our church. Bill is a transitional hall for Twenty Six men who are desiring a second chance at live will working with them to mentor them disciple them get them economic opportunities so they can hopefully lead their families and be contributors to the charge and to the community and so I think discipleship is a big thing making discipleship of men as husbands and fathers the centerpiece of the church the call to disciple man as a centerpiece of the charts this is no slide against women but if you WanNa bless less women and children you better start with blessing men and we're doing that by the side pulling them as central focus of our churches agenda. I was speaking high school in the in downtown Denver Ver- actually had been there for a while. We have program. There used to love going to high school as large large class than I ask. What were their dream? These were all high school seniors juniors and seniors and about half the guys is one to be in the N._B._A.. That was their agreement. That's what they were headed for. They thought and most of the girls the first thing they said was what have a baby and then life would go on on and then down the the the road. Maybe get married. You know as Enda such an interesting thing where everything seemed to be turned just a bit but nobody nobody flinched at all. It was just like yeah that's that's the those are the values of our culture in you deal with that all the time and so when you talk about the cycling men how how young how old you do your discipleship with them yeah right there in North Carolina one of our former elders of our church leads a national national movement Carlos Johnson and it's called the future man program and he starts with Doug men <hes> as early as h five helping them to understand what family is upping them to experience that on <hes> helping them to have visions for the future giving them mentors that our husbands fathers themselves so they can see positive role models. The beautiful thing about the cosby show is that it was a nationally recognized show the bath. The thing about it is that it was on T._v.. It was fictional. There was no one the tides no one to hold no one to walk with <hes> what we are trying to do across the nation is to bring those images to live live to a neighborhood near you so mobilizing healthy <hes> men mobilizing models of family is really critical really important <hes> Air Mason. I got a mentioned Eric Mason. WHO's out of Philadelphia who's doing win a great job calling me into restored manhood and this whole thought that every man has to disciple a boy if you're not decide believe a young man? You're not doing your job stars with your biological kids obviously but if you're an urban America even if you don't have biological children you become a surrogate dead you you become a mentor you grab a yard Nannies. I WANNA walk with you until Christ is formed in you say bill the earlier the better work working with man walking with young men and helping them to give vision and values were based off of the Gospel and this is just a question. I hear from a lot of people. Believers who feel real urge to be involved in the inner city they what can white woman white men contribute to the ministry in the inner city. We had enlist as long I I I would. I would just encourage number one start in after you've read <hes> urban apologetic to <hes> make sure that you do two things to other resources Ryan thickets book would helping hearts is a very important book in in this conversation and secondly. I mentioned C. C. D. A. Dot Org Christian Community Development Association. Even if you just look at their core values that will help you. I think there's a number of things that we can do number. One I would say have as great love for missions in urban inner cities as we do for global missions far too often we will get on planes and five halfway across the world zero but we won't do the same thing ten fifteen twenty miles away from all church oftentimes we despise local missions through our actions of behaviors while celebrating global mission so I'll say number number one. Ask yourself before you get on that plane. Are there groups that weaken serve in Hell here locally secondly everything flows from relationships so those who are pastors those who are business leaders who the desire to serve Christ should make as part of relational plan to bill relationship with Great Urban Ministry leaders you can rally around and if I have a number of those relationships somebody wants to send me an email and say who's in my town. You know there are a number of people across America that you can connect with. I would say that the lasting bill about this week it talk about each one of these for hours on end but lasting. I'll say his honoring indigenous leadership what I mean by that is you don't have to go in as a white knight and what I mean that term is to think that you have to go and rescue urban America. God is already at work. We go into any city any neighborhood. We don't bring Jesus to those neighborhoods. We discover what he's already doing and as much as possible we want to ask those indigenous leaders there how we conserve them and how we can help them in their quest to reach disciple and evangelize. They're all neighborhoods in their own communities that I think that if we do that then we'll see <hes> revival we'll see wonderful wonderful bridges being built but but don't think that <hes> skin color determines where you can serve Christ. There's a need for multi generational and multi cultural multi ethnic movement in our inner cities and operates this guy that it's happening. We're talking about social justice because it's a huge issue as it relates to the inner city and you wrote so well about in the in your book between you WanNa talk about that just for a moment yeah. This is one of those things where data matters I love my friend Ed Stetzer statement facts are friends and so I think it's important for us to look at facts in data concerning disparities in educational opportunities <hes> wealth in America employment opportunities these things continue to remain a challenges and <hes> and wherever we have as Americans in particular as Christians wherever we have identify an equities in injustices and we've acknowledged address them progress has been made. One of my concerns is happening in the church. Today is an unwillingness to hear the narrative that there may be disparities anywhere there may A. B. Barriers anywhere so so let me just address this head on there are two causal factors to dominate causal factors in scripture for poverty to dominate causal factors one. The is individual Iniquity Bible in particular book of proverbs talks about the fool the slugger the individual will because of their own immoral choices brings about their own poverty. We have to acknowledge that the the problem with that narrative is that far too many see that as the sole causal factor for poverty and broke in this in a person's life that if you would have just made better choices you would be okay. The Bible does not promote that as the only narrative there is another narrative in that is institutional injustice. This is when government behaves badly. This is when systems of injustice <hes> or law behave badly this is when there's not a particular name or person you can point to but an overall structural problem there's examples of this drought history or throughout Biblical History Nehemiah Maya Thirteen as an example of government behaving badly on them. I was very concerned. It had to come back after the rebuilding and reinstitute reforms that have been corrupted since he was there Ezekiel twenty two the powerful chapter where God brings a case against Israel because they were oppressing the poor and the poor were not getting justice so even the judges weren't giving the justice they should to the poor we see examples of that in our day for example public defenders offices are terribly underfunded if you do the research what you find is that about eighty percent of the cases that Abroa- in court in America have defendants criminal cases have defended they can't afford adequate legal representation now a lot of those individuals end up being imprisoned simply because of their poverty simply because they can't afford it and just about every public public defender's office across America will tell you that when states have to cut funding in any area that there at the top of the list and they're trying to do as much as they can with being under funded <hes> another great chapter later on this is six acts chapter six we see the church growing and exciting activities happening but a complaint rises among the Hellenistic Jews who are ethnic minorities by culture by custom to through the he brings us that were in leadership the apostles and others and what was the complaint. It was a complaint about economic injustice. The complaint was that the widows the Hellenistic widows were not being treated equally in a daily distribution of resources sources. <hes> there was no individual named there. There was no specific person. It was a structural thing it was a draw daughter institutional thing and the apostles understood it. They created a another leadership ship group seven Greek Hellenistic leaders Jewish hellenist leaders that I came among them and help to share power and so I just simply say that the problem with our partisan Zim politics bill is at one of these narratives are often cited as the total narrative so you have those who will side institutional injustice as the only problem in America that we can fix this to their air we find our salvation or that's not the gospel others say it's the individual needs to do better with that's not the total picture either we who are well informed. Biblical Christians have to acknowledge both causal factors individual iniquity an institutional justice when we have to consistently address both thanks for listening to today's breakpoint podcast again we have Chris Brooks's book urban apologetic at our online bookstore at breakpoint..

The Latest in U.S. Legislation
"And Tom Paula calluses on the phone talking talking us through the this year session and new bills at are out. And what's happening? So Tom you wanna finish up before we went to break a couple just to to remind listeners that there's a great website, WWW dot L, E, G dot state dot N, B got US. That's the legislative council bureaus of the legislature's website. And you can go there. It's very user friendly do search for whatever topic that you're interested in and you'll find the Bill there. It's just a fabulous resource for citizens dealing with the the water issue. There's an interesting Bill coming up AB two. Sixty five which would require the desert research institute to study water treatment and recycling so of interest of the conservation community, and then just keep in mind. There's also the again going back to the economic benefits we have a b three thirty one which would create an office about recreation and a grant program to help boost our tourism industry in the outdoor recreation area. So a lot of bills others that are dealing with conservation measures in general. So again, I just encourage people if you've got a particular interest not uniquely on conservation issues, but everything's up there on that. Let's cancel bureau website, and a great resource, you can put your opinion on bills directly online. Find your legislators contact information and to plug into the whole decision making process up in Carson city. That's right. Find your Bill track at follow it participate be a member of sustainable society. Things you said going to break was when you save electricity. You save on water. And what's interesting is. Conversely, that's true as well. So when you save on water also save on electric city because people don't think about well, if you're saving some water, you're saving water. That's great. But you also saving the pumping of that water. So there's a lot of lectures, e goes into getting that water delivered to people's faucets. Excellent point. So other things happening in the legislation. When do we expect to see some of these bills voted on well today, we'll be a big day again for a major advancement in clean energy with SP three fifty eight against shut up to Senator Chris Brooks? He's been moving that advancing that concept ever since he's been in the legislature starting off as an assemblyman. So again wanna recognize some of the folks that have. Kudos to the entire legislature. As it did move forward unanimously. But a couple of folks have been working at it for a long long time. Also to various groups that have supported us such as Nevada conservation league and others that have been really just getting the word out explaining the benefits later this week. Again, we have a b four sixty five that is coming up. So that is the Bill that would provide expanded solar access program and facilitate solar getting to lower income neighborhoods and an opportunity for lower income consumers to get some savings from solar. So those are bills that are coming up this week again, there's an opportunity to support or to voice your opinion. One. Also, go back to the electric school bus issue. That was again, Senator Chris Brooks working in conjunction with Senator Pat Spearman and trying to get more electric transportation on the roads specifically in the school sector, which I think is both. Great for the environment. But also provides an educational opportunity as kids get a chance to see what electric Motors can do as as we get those types of day calls on the roads time, I heard a metric one time that the Clark county school district is a second largest buses earn the US. Is that true? I was I could well be you may have. Yeah. It sounds sounds certainly plausible. They are the fifth largest district. And I think they're in districts that sized they're the most spread out most districts that are huge like that Lanta LA New York are more compressed than so more kids are are walking to school. So the school bus program. That's a great idea is this a pilot program, or is this a you gotta do this. So how knows Bill go to work a pilot program. Right. I mean, just the sheer number of as you allude to sheer number of buses, there's not funding in order to provide all all school districts. You know, certainly. Not all buses will be going electric. But certainly enough can get on the road where we can start to see some empirical data verify the cost savings estimates. See how they play out in in the real world. Be able to see how batteries perform under different conditions of high heat and so forth. And then also provides an opportunity to really see some interesting concepts. When you've got a big battery and about you've got an energy storage device that mobile, so there's been some interesting discussion as to addition to transporting students what could those batteries on buses be used for? And it's, you know, the idea of electric storage is certainly an important concept. Now, we have with electric school buses, the the idea that there was a need or backup power. You've got a big battery and a chance to move it on over to a facility that may not have power for whatever reason and get. Some some backup to critical facilities through electric school buses. So number of interesting ideas, how electric batteries and vehicles can help improve the grid down the road. We'll see more vehicle to grid integration. And the idea that batteries in whatever vehicle can help manage the grid more economically. And we also went to space seeing some ratepayer savings for everyone as we get more electric vehicles on the road as we'll be able to leverage our electric system more efficiently. So good stuff than about alleged. Sure is looking at. And so it's an exciting time and the energy relevant about. And thank you for for your interest and keeping people informed as to what's

"Eight one eight five six six four seventy nine. Congressman Tom McClintock. Coming back on the John and Ken show after five o'clock. He probably has a few things to say about the partial government shutdown and Trump's request for border wall funding, which today resulted in Trump standing up on Pelosi and Schumer and saying see you because when he came in there. They basically told them you're not getting anything for the wall from our democratic house of representatives. They're not going to vote for that. So Trump was putting up with it. And in fact, he said I said bye bye nothing else works. He wants border wall funding or nothing so Schumer did tell reporters took just got up and walked out of the meeting. We have nothing to discuss he said kicked him on his way up Schumer trip them, kicked them. So the series of phony they he voted for like seven hundred miles worth of fencing a few years ago. Yesterday. One of the big videos on our web page was the dead raccoon in the San Francisco McDonald's in the chronicle did today do a story on it. Because it did happen as we suspected. It was just too. Looking to have not been well, I never I never doubted for moment. Anyway. Although it says here details remain Finn about the circumstances. This is a story, by the way by Amy graph of the San Francisco Chronicle SF gate dot com because it's full of some interesting. The incident is quickly becoming a symbol of the tough situation. The city faces with mentally ill citizens and the businesses grappling with serving them grappling serve them. A guy brings a dead raccoon into your restaurant throw him out of the restaurant. What do you mean grappling? So here's Pete committee meeting about this the people involved Chris Brooks, fifty four years old was picking up an egg mcmuffin before work, and this is the McDonalds at Potrero avenue and sixteenth street. He saw a man gripping the lifeless raccoon in his arms. So Brooks random was scoring on his cellphone video. I guess this is the guy we hear in the commentary is the guy came in screaming. Help help help he came to the counter. And I thought it was a dog at first the employee's told him to leave. Well, we went over and he sat down with the raccoon. And that's where we see in the video dead raccoon is on the table in front of him. He ended there was blood on the table and blood on the floor with people walking around them. Tracking the blood around for God's sakes. Even worse. Tastic report tracking the dead raccoon blood. He meant well, though. He really did get out of here. I wouldn't. Did not mean well wanted to get dope. And the only place he thought to go was already dead link it with. Brooke says that the McDonald's is often frequented by people without housing. Escape from the cold without a doubt housing. By the way. Oh mcdonald's. The cops weighed in here officer, Adam lob singer, a great name blob singer. They did respond at seven in the morning based on our information. He didn't meet the criteria for psychiatric detention. That is a good laugh. I would think if you put a dead raccoon on the table in McDonalds, not right? That doesn't meet the Craig. No, they look it up in the book. But if he's swung it in the air throat at somebody. There was no chapter on dead raccoon in the McDonald's. So you see you see what I'm saying? Like at a San Francisco Bank, probably have four speed when we had normal life. If a guy walked in with a dead raccoon into McDonalds the police would come in arrest. Oh nuts. They put them in a mental hold right now. Don't if it meets the criteria for a psychiatric evaluation. It's perfectly normal behavior to take dead raccoon into our restaurant and having leaked blood all over the place, while lob singer says when we take people into custody, it means you have to be a threat to yourself or to others. So I guess the dead raccoon threat goons a threat, it's got disease. It could have rabies the restaurant was closed and sanitized immediately after the incident. So this is what the police reopened two hours later. So the police are not authorized to detain a guy who's bringing dead animals into a restaurant. I like this a physician who works with homeless people watch the video and quote cannot infer anything about the man's condition. In fact, they cannot confirm the man's housing situation. What it's taboo? Suggests apparently it is it's a rush to judgment. Do that. All right coming up next crazy up there. If a chance to talk to you.

"We have Chris Brooks assemblyman from district ten. Good morning. Chris good morning when we laughed went to break. We were talking about interests seven zero four B and the companies that are leaving the grid and going their own way. How do you see that coming back up in two thousand nineteen th session? What's going to happen there? Well, there's been a lot of desire folks to extend the seven zero four beat other customers to make the exit fee calculation. Simpler to calculate more transparent more predictable. And so I think they'll they'll definitely be some desire to do some of those things. But I I don't know that that there needs to be or there's a major overhaul or major changes being proposed to it. One of the things that you mentioned before we went to break was the son car, and how the fee is supposed to take care of those costs. What are the things that that isn't discussed a lot, but is very obvious and evident when you look at the for be filing large, consumers subsidize smaller consumers, so heavy industrial users and casinos. And and mine, they pay they take delivery of large amounts of energy, and that is a much more efficient way to deliver energy to consumer. Then you so if you're a small user, and you use very little electricity, especially if you're, you know, out on the end of the line, or I you're an older electrical distribution part of town, you cost a lot more than what you actually pay. And and the way that we worked out years passes. Just kind of put it all together mixed it all up and a lot of those distribution costs were paid for by large consumers. So that we could keep residential rates reasonable. What happens is as all? These large consumers leave is residential rate base is is going to eventually feel that pain. Right. And so these when we talk about sunk costs, it costs something to build that power plant and to build those power lines and the distribution system, and like you said one big pipe going into a casino is efficient, but thousands and thousands of little small pipes are wires going to residential costs. A lot more to to deliver. Hence the difference in costs for their costs are less. So when they leave that's the base load of why they built the utility plant and everybody else's costs. Go up, hence, the exit fee is that correct? That's the concept. And so I I don't think anybody is completely satisfied with how effective that exit fee calculation is. But it because there's just so many variables associated with it. And you know, you're a large business. Of course, you want to get the absolute best price for a commodity as you possibly can. But you know, the way that the electrical system in this country, the built out a lot of those posture socialized across all of the ratepayers. So that's gonna be the conversation moving forward, not just in Nevada, but across this country. All good. Thank you for that. Chris let's talk a little bit about renewable portfolio standards are our PS legislation which is also passed during the two thousand seventeen a legislative session to extend existing our PS beyond twenty twenty five talk to us a little bit about that. What does that mean? So the RPI renewable portfolio standard has been the tool that most states have used to get to high levels of renewable energy, the RPI tells a a utility that they must buy buy or make a certain.

"Green on Katie w seven twenty AM and one one point five FM today. Our guest speaker is Chris Brooks assemblyman from district ten. Good morning. Chris Martin we are back. Let's talk community solar legislation was passed in two thousand seventeen but the governor vetoed. It got to believe that's going to be coming back up soon next legislative session. Tell us about that. Well, community solar is a concept, and there's many different definitions for it. But it's a concept where you don't physically have solar on your roof yet, you get the benefits of having a solar system. And so there are several different models out there. One would be that the utility in a large utility scale system has offers a subscription. Rate that you then pay end too. So you get one hundred percent solar for your your property. Another model would be that you have small to large systems distributed throughout the community and individual community members that don't have the ability to have solar because they live at let's say an apartment or multi family home or a senior center or don't have a suitable. Roofs, or they ran the home Durant yet. They still want to have the benefits of solar. They would then invest in or subscribe to that particular solar system. And so that's the concept, and there was a Bill and in the last legislative session that that that came up with a plan so do community solar. And that particular Bill was more. It was more like a large scale utility system, and where most of the benefits went to a large corporate consumer, and and not as many went to low income or targeted communities, four communities solar. And so that and and the fact that it there was uncertainty associated with question three that was on the ballot has passed already one in two thousand sixteen. The governor vetoed it. We will definitely be bringing this concept back to this legislative session. And and it will look different than it did last time, but the uncertainty associated with question three no longer exists. I think we'll have on on a few of these fronts will have a much more productive discussion about things like community, solar and RPI and rooftop solar. Now that question three doesn't throw that whole conversation into complete disarray. So it sounds to me like solar has a bright bright future. If. Absolutely, absolutely. We have we, you know, one of the things the most important thing for folks who are investing in community solar projects rooftop solar project. Utility scale projects is certainty and question three created uncertainty now that that failed and failed by a wide margin that we can we can put him play statutes and and policy that that reintroduced that certainty to the business community, so they can invest in Nevada. And that's great. And we'll should have some solar on our houses. It's the perfect place for it. Moving along on NRA seven zero four b was used by several large Nevada entities to exit the grid exit. The regulated monopoly utility grid by paying multi millions of dollars to exit for an exit fee to protect the remaining pool of utility ratepayers. Can you tell us about that these included like MGM resorts Caesars win and switch? So back in the late nineties, and and. Two thousand and two thousand one Nevada tried to deregulate their retail electric supply model through statute and similar to what question three tried to do. And when we did that it it really it caused the market to crash, and if you recall, the the western energy crisis blackouts and brownouts and in California Vada, Montana. That was as a result of market manipulation and scarcity of of energy supply. Well, that's the leftover from that front we returned everything back to how it was. But one of the things over from that process is in our wrath, Nevada or by statute, seven four b and that allowed that was meant. So that large consumers could go out for their own energy. Because at the time. The local electric utility in Nevada could not do that and the cost effective manner. And it was so that we could shed some of that large load. Well, casinos and minds and data centers have figured out that that by using seven or four they can also go out for their own energy. So that they can get a better price for it, theoretically. And like you mentioned several these pretty much every major casino and mine has has filed or has already left and what they have to do. They the public utilities commission looks at investments made on the overall system that were meant to accommodate that load that existing load or or the growth that that load project it, and and when this customer leaves they have to. To pay a fee that is supposed to reflect what that impact is on all the other rate payers in the system and that was. That there has been quite a bit of debate on whether it's a fair peace should they pay the fee, and I I believe that led to that whole process led to the the question three being put on the ballot. I I don't know that question three necessarily would have made that go away. But it it definitely seven zero four be the process by which you have to leave the system created the the fire by a few of the participants in that to to be to be exact to put that ballot question up to Nevada. Well, I know part of the question is about ensuring fairness for all the energy ratepayers. So if these big guys jump off the grid and go.

"We have Jennifer Taylor from new economy west consulting, and she's also board member with green alliance and their scribes. So we're talking legislation and trying to come up to speed from a little history prior to two thousand fifteen envy energy, or excuse me, Nevada was the number one employer of renewable energy jobs in the United States, and then some two thousand fifteen legislation altered the net metering and some tax credits and people started running from it and actually companies started running from Nevada and then in two thousand seventeen we had a new Bill come out to kind of correct. It all that. Once you bring us up to speed on that Bill Jennifer share that was a B four or five which was sponsored by assemblyman. Chris Brooks was originally sponsored by assemblyman Justin Watkins, the Chris Brooks who is are fantastic. Champion on Energie really helped shape. What that ended up looking like. And how that brought the solar industry back into being the economic driver that it that it was part of two thousand fifteen so what it did was it reestablished the one to one credit. I'm sorry. It didn't have it set a system where there was no cap on rooftop solar installations, which had been one of the issues before two thousand fifteen before the PC undertook. It's it's docket in two thousand fifteen in early two thousand sixteen so it eighty four or five opened it up. So there was no cap anybody can get rooftop solar if they want but in exchange for that what they did was they set up trenches. So the first so anybody who had had a system prior to the implementation of AB four or five which was July of. Two thousand seventeen would be grandfathered in at pre existing rates, which was basically the one to one credit that existed before two thousand fifteen and then after that as installations came on in think, it's two hundred megawatt tranches the next two hundred megawatts that were installed would get ninety five percent of of that payback. Which really was a great way for the industry to be able to go back and say to folks you're getting ninety five percent of your credit sent in and made it really economically viable, then it goes down to eighty eight percents. Eighty-one percent seventy five percent in eighty megawatts steps. So those would be seventy five percents seventy five percent. Yeah. That's the lowest tell this for my edification. Why was there ever a cap? I know it was growing. So slowly, it's not like, they would blow the, you know, suddenly, the energy company can general, but think about it Paul part of the reason there was the I initially was growing really slowly because it was mostly purchases only, and that was a very expensive investment until the price of rooftop solar started to really come down. And until this the lease model that we were talking about came into the four because that really gave a lot of people opportunities to install rooftop solar and take advantage of of those savings and take and give them the opportunity to be more green. But until that system until that economic model was was created innovatively not everybody could do it. And so I think the cap would just like with any. I I don't know I wasn't really involved in in legislation before two thousand fifteen but that that cap I think was intended to let the the the industry grow in sort of a. Measured and sustainable smart way Guinea Koeppen legislation. I it does kind of set in a automatic review when you cap which should have happened. But I think twenty four team fourteen was almost like a gold rush in solar though, things were coming so fast that in the energy couldn't even process orders coming in even in two thousand fifteen STAN when you look at the number of those lease model rooftops that went in in two thousand fifteen even after the session started. And even after there was a knowledge that there was going to be cap, and there's going to be a review, but you know, that's all history, and that's important history. So that we understand that that energy issues are constantly in flux, and we need as citizens who care about these issues to watch what's going on at the public utility commission and watch what's going on at the legislature. And be mindful of of you know, how our legislators are shaping our energy policy because Nevada really has the ability to continue to lead in clean, technology and clean, energy and soul. And all of those things. So you know, I would just say that that eighty four or five early fix the system the industry's back up and running. I had people even though I have solar. I had people come to my door to try to sell me solar. So they, you know, this is something that we can now look at proudly and say this got fixed in seventeen we had some hiccups, and we ended out, and we just need to make sure that no matter what happens with other issues, for example, question three, which is the energy choice initiative that would seek to unbundle how we get our energy. We wanna make sure that those policies and those priorities are things that the state still focus on and still looks at as important goals for how we do our energy policy. So currently at the ABC zero five fixed the solar issue. So now we have now it's a good idea. Again, the jobs are coming back the company's coming back. I don't know where we stand as far as employment for renewable energy. But it's got to be have increased. The leaders anymore. I think we're back. Back in sort of the top five. But I mean, you know, there's a lot of other issues too. Besides rooftop that have really made us stand out and those are things like community solar. Well, community solar is so we can talk about community solar for the community solar is a way that folks that don't. The. Tubs rooftops that don't have the right orientation on the rooftops. That don't have the financing. Whether it's because remember, even you know, if you purchase it, you gotta have a certain amount of capital, if you lease it, you have to have a certain credit level, and you know, and that's small communities can have an access to solar. So the community solar billets, it's essentially virtual net. Metering. You're still kind of looking at a larger system that serves more than one rooftop, and they're still credits back in fourth in between generation and the distribution back and forth. So that that was that Bill was presented and was vetoed. But we know that there will be a community solar Bill that will come back, and there's been a lot of discussions between some of the energy advocates and the utility to figure out the best way to make community solar work for the community. Let's continue on here. A seven zero four be talking about that. Yeah. Seven four B is essentially, it's a it's a statutory structure that lets buddy any entity that uses one megawatt or more of energy to ask the PC to allow it to purchase its own energy outside of that vertically integrated structure that we have with envy energy. So right now in Vienna. Is provides the generation the distribution. The transmission in the retailing of energy. You can only buy from envy energy because they made a deal with the state of Nevada that said, you let us be the exclusive franchise of energy, and we will subject ourselves to regulation on how much we had to charge on how much we get to recover when we build assets or purchase assets. And you know, and that's this regulatory compact. So during the western energy crisis, and the initials sort of round of efforts in Nevada to deregulate that unbundle that system. This was a two thousand one when California writes try to deregulate a lot of other states were starting the first wave of it. But they ran into trouble with market manipulation from California in particular. Yeah. Thanks for setting that marker there on timeframe so wet when Nevada stopped working on deregulation. One of the sort of compromise pieces of legislation was this. Seven zero four beach structure. So if you've seen a lot in the news about casinos exiting the system about switch exiting the system about companies exiting. And what it does is? It says you company are sophisticated in large enough that you can go buy your energy out on on the wholesale market. But because of our long term planning process envy energy has planned and purchased and done things to accommodate your load. So you need to then pay us an exit fee to make sure that the rest of the repairs are not being forced to pay for what was built or choir to accommodate your large load. So that's essentially seven four being nutshell. There are a lot of questions and concerns with seven zero four being and there is a thought that seven zero four self was one of the drivers for the for the energy choice initiative question three. So I think that you will hear a lot more discussion about that. After the election. I think you'll hear a lot more discussion about seven four being what we need to do to make it transparent. Fair modernized come. In February when the legislation when the legislature opens up, so that's good two thousand seventeen legislation. We had the mandate for twenty five percent. And now in two thousand nine hundred we've got some legislation that's gonna bump that up a little bit. We're going to talk.

"For accessing clean energy nine of those eleven bills passed the two bills passed out of the legislature briefly took out of the governor's office there are still issues that we're working on i also serve on the governor's committee on energy choice which if you'll remember from when we talked last year the energy choice initiative was of ballot measure that would open up the market for consumer choice in their energy supply he wanted to make sure that our committee worked on the two issues that he vetoed which were renewable portfolios standard and community solar a little bit more as we had it into a second vote on that initiative have to determine whether or not we would indeed have an open market for retail competition in energy supply so let me just kinda run through some of these bills and let you know how they will have the ability to impact nevada ends and i think the one that most people are going to be most interested in is assembly bill 405 the bill intended to fix rooftop solar and some of the issues that had arisen in two thousand fifteen in early two thousand sixteen with the payback structure from the public utility commission you and i have talked about it a couple of times rooftop solar hound that's really been one of the driving forces behind a lot of the coverage and awareness and activism that we've seen in the clean energy sector unless the back for a second and say that part of the reason we had such an amazing session legislatively was through the help of clean energy champion legislators like assemblyman chris brooks senator pitcher spearman whose amazing senator calvin atkinson who chaired the senate commerce labor an energy committee but then we had some new legislators who were really eager to be part of this discussion on access to clean energy options into energy efficiency for everybody people like assemblyman justin watkins assemblymen william mccurdy's second assemblyman ozzie fumo everybody who sat on the assembly commerce and labor subcommittee and we got a lot of bipartisan support for these bills eighty four or five with a significant number of votes from the minority also every single bill that came out of the legislature had bipartisan support in some.
