Nevada’s two major private-sector electric utilities, both operating under corporate parent NV Energy, will merge into one utility headquartered in Las Vegas. Sierra Pacific Power Co., a combination natural gas and electric utility in the north, will be consolidated into the larger electric-only Nevada Power Co. utility in the south, said NV Energy CEO Michael Yackira. Filings to the Nevada Public Utilities Commission and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission are to be made by the end of this year.
