Thoughtful natural resource planning is essential to maintaining utilities services for the growing Southern Nevada economy. Electricity, water and natural gas service providers are all working to ensure that they can keep up with projected demand. The state's utility companies use a combination of coal, hydropower, and natural gas to provide a variety of options for delivering highly dependable service at the lowest possible price. Power companies offer cost-based time-of-use rate schedules for commercial and industrial customers to provide energy cost savings by coordinating their heavy-load consumption.
Water resources, so precious in the desert, are carefully maintained and upgraded to provide water services for a growing population as well as millions of visitors from around the world.
Advances designed to capitalize on the region's abundant sunshine as well as geothermal resources are helping make Nevada a leader in the future of alternative energy.
