ABSTRACT
The article reports on a proposal by NV Energy to increase its rates its rates in Southern Nevada. While large retailer would pay 14.08% more, small business owners would only face a 4.98% increase in rates in September 2009. According to Michael Yackira, chief executive of NV Energy, the company is proposing a larger rate increase for residential customers, 17.5%, in the belief that current rates subsidize residential customers at the expense of non-residential customers.
