NV Energy has been the only option Nevada residents have when it comes to purchasing electricity since 1919.
At that time, the people of Nevada chose to trust a public utility with the state’s power infrastructure and costs. Nevadans knew that it would be most economical for one company to build the first electrical grid. Giving up competition in the energy market, a monopoly was built that would provide service to all Nevadans. This worked for some time, but many argue that era has passed and a different energy market should be embraced.
