Lighting Up the Nevada Economy
NV Energy has been providing the state with safe, reliable energy for more than a century.

NV Energy also provides natural gas service to 155,000 customers in the Reno-Sparks area.
NV Energy serves its customers through a generation portfolio primarily fueled by natural gas but renewable energy also is an important part of the company's generation mix. Currently, the company has contracts with 35 renewable energy facilities to provide energy to customers, including geothermal, solar thermal, solar photovoltaic, hydro, biomass, wind and waste-heat recovery. Five additional projects are in development or under construction.
