NV Energy Service Territory Information

Excellent customer service, reliable energy and competitive rates are important to you as our customer and a key goal for us as your energy provider. If your business operations allow you to shift your on-peak usage to mid-peak or off-peak hours, you may want to take advantage of our optional Time of Use (TOU) rates.

Things to Consider:

We encourage you to review the energy usage patterns for your business and take the following into account when considering participation in this program:

  • The optional Time of Use program has rates that are generally higher in the summer season and lower in the winter season which makes the winter season an optimal time to sign-up for the program.
  • Signing up when winter rates are in effect will give you time to familiarize yourself with the program when rates and monthly bills are generally lower.
  • Depending on where your business is located, the weather, and your energy usage patterns, your monthly bills may be higher during the summer season.
  • The optional TOU Rate will become effective on the next full billing cycle after the TOU meter is installed and stay in effect for a minimum term of one year and will continue on a month to month basis thereafter.
  • NV Energy requires full physical access monthly to the TOU meter.
  • All NV Energy rates are subject to change by the Nevada Public Utilities Commission.
  • NV Energy is authorized to release billing and load information to agents of NV Energy for the sole purpose of providing services relating to the TOU Rate program.

If you would like to be placed in the program at this time, proceed to the sign-up page.
