The article reports on some speculations about the Ely Energy Center project in Las Vegas, Nevada. It states that the signals from Sierra Pacific Resources, Nevada Power Co.'s parent company, are implying that the project is dead but Sierra states that it will postpone the Ely project due to delays in the Bureau of Land Management's review. However, Sierra's chief executive officer (CEO) Michael Yackira states that they plan to pursue the north-south transmission line if the Ely project is further delayed.
