Power Bills Rising to Pay for Energy Efficiency Programs

Southern Nevada energy rates will rise about 3.4 percent or about $5.29 a month on the average residential home bill, to pay for energy efficiency programs and the lost sales related to those efforts for NV Energy, the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada ruled unanimously today.
