The Fernley Reporter
The Public Utilities Commission of Nevada (PUCN) March 22 voted unanimously to approve NV Energy’s request to reduce rates for its electric and natural gas customers in southern and northern Nevada by $83.7 million. The request was made as a result of federal tax changes approved last year.
Effective April 1, the average southern Nevada single-family residential customer will see a reduction of $4.15 per month, or 2.86 percent. In northern Nevada, the average single-family residential customer bill will decrease by $2.81 per month, or 3.19 percent and the average single-family residential gas customer will see a reduction of $1.08 per month, or 2.72 percent.
