NV Energy Loses Court Battle to Build New Power Lines
News

HENDERSON, Nev -- A judge has ruled against NV Energy's plan to build new power lines near a Henderson neighborhood.

"I think the residents and the City of Henderson have proven that if you stand by what's right and what the law is, you can prevail, so we're very excited," said Joel Kaplan, a resident.

The city of Henderson backed the upset residents and shut down the plan two times but NV Energy took the case to court saying this is the most cost-effective way to upgrade the six miles of lines.

"We recognize that anything that we would do would have an impact on some neighbors, but we try to take a look at the entire community." said David Rogdon, NV Energy Government Affairs.

NV Energy says changing the route of the power lines will increase costs that will likely be reflected in future power bills.
