Lander County Utilities

Nevada's utility rates are competitive with other major western states. Nevada Assembly Bill 366, passed in 1997, opened the electric utility industry to competition. An added benefit of the deregulation process is a three-year cap on rates to business and residential customers. As of 2000, consumers have the opportunity to select their power provider.

The state's utility companies make use of various sources for producing energy. Coal, hydropower, and natural gas combined with purchase agreements provide a variety of options for delivering highly dependable service at the lowest possible price. Power companies offer cost-based time-of-use rate schedules for commercial and industrial customers, helping them save on their energy costs by coordinating their heavy-load consumption.

Please use the rate schedules and worksheets in the table below to estimate your power bill. If you have any questions on any of the worksheets or rates, please contact us at 1.800.824.8856.

In addition, NV Energy would be happy to calculate a power estimate for your company. Power Estimate Requirements

Return to TopGeothermal

Nevada ranks second only to California in the development and use of its geothermal resources for producing electricity. According to the Nevada Commission on Mineral Resources, there are currently 14 plants at 10 locations in the state with a total rated capacity of 236 megawatts (MW). Total state resources capacity has been estimated at 2,000 MW by the U.S. Geological Survey.

The Department of Energy's Geothermal Technologies Program supports the U.S. geothermal industry in providing diversity, and therefore security, in domestic energy supply options. This support also helps the industry maintain its technical edge in world energy markets, thereby enhancing exports of U.S. goods and services and U.S. job growth. DOE works in partnership with U.S. industry to establish geothermal energy as an economically competitive contributor to the U.S. energy supply.
