Nevada Coop May Power Creech Air Force Base

NV Energy may be on the verge of giving up its role as the direct source of electricity to Creech Air Force Base, which is located north of Las Vegas.  The role would be shared with Nevada coop Valley Electric Association (VEA), which would operate the switches, transformers, and distribution lines to the base in connection with a federal contract it won.  NV Energy had filed a complaint stating that VEA is a public utility and would be providing electricity to a non-member if it got to keep this contract.  VEA maintained its non-public utility and customer-owned status.  The Public Utilities Commission is expected to act on a suggested order denying NV Energy’s complaint.  Click here for more.
