Myron L Meters Thanks NV Energy!

Posted by 2 Jul, 2012


NV Energy has served citizens in northern Nevada for over 150 years, and southern Nevada since 1906. Nevada Power, Sierra Pacific Power and Sierra Pacific Resources merged in July 1999 to create one of the fastest growing energy companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange. In 2008, both subsidiaries began doing business as NV Energy signaling our commitment to serving Nevada’s energy needs. Our service area covers 45,592 square miles of the fastest growing state in the U.S.

We provide electricity to 2.4 million electric citizens throughout Nevada as well as a state tourist population exceeding 40 million annually. Among the many communities we serve are Las Vegas, Reno-Sparks, Henderson, and Elko. We also provide natural gas to more than 145,000 citizens in the Reno-Sparks area.

Our three-part energy strategy includes making investments that enable our customers to reduce energy usage; expanding renewable energy initiatives and adding clean, efficient generation and related transmission infrastructure.

NV Energy is also dedicated to making our community a better place. Across Nevada, our employees, retirees and their families volunteered 24,000 hours of their own time to various organizations. The total dollar value for NV Energy’s employee volunteer efforts for 2010 is estimated to be $500,400 (24,000 hours x $20.85).

Additionally in 2010, through corporate and employee gifts NV Energy contributed approximately $1.3 million statewide to United Way. This level of giving made NV Energy the largest corporate and employee supporter of the United Way of Southern Nevada and the United Way of Northern Nevada.
