Funny how all the rolling brownouts in California stopped once the Enron energy traders were stopped.

Article today in the RJ about digital meters and peak pricing between 3 and 7pm that could raise the AVERAGE bill to well over $500 per month in the summer.

Why doesn't someone just say NO to these people?

That's why I'm sitting here sweating because I'm afraid to turn ON the AC.

My bills are still around $55 and that's with me turning the AC on every now and then to bring the temp back down to at least 79-80.

$500/mo will seem like chump change if cap and trade ever passes.

I've been harping on this for a long time. the NVENERGY group is and always have been the most greedy of the greediest monopolies ever. they are in cahoots with key govt people and contribute boatloads of money to the people who can give them what they want. Their expenses will nosedive and their profits will skyrocket and it will never benefit anyone but themselves.

there are so many many places , businesses, nursinghomes, etc, that will pay through the nose with this new system not to mention the countless retirees that can barely get by now. they say that yearly costs will remain about the same (yeah , right!) with off peak times being at lower rates , but who can survive the extreme heat in peak summer months without full blast A/C and corresponding sky high electric bills that will end up becoming the most expensive monthly budget allocation that you have other than mabey your mortgage payment.

If I'm not mistaken, NVEnergy is a FAKE name to convince you that they aren't REALLY a Kalifornia company here to rape Nevada...[Sierra Pacific Power]

Nevada Power Company and Sierra Pacific Power Company Price Tender Offers for Debt Securities
LAS VEGAS, June 21, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Nevada Power Company and Sierra Pacific Power Company, two wholly-owned subsidiaries of Sierra Pacific Resources (NYSE: SRP), announced today that each has priced its tender offer for any and all of its respective series of General and Refunding Mortgage securities.

Under the terms of Nevada Power's tender offer for its 9% General and Refunding Mortgage Notes, Series G, due 2013 (the "Notes") and assuming a settlement date of June 28, 2007, Nevada Power will pay $1,079.75 plus accrued interest for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes purchased in the offer. This price was determined by reference to a fixed spread of 50 basis points or 0.50% over the yield to August 15, 2008 (the first date on which the Notes are redeemable at a fixed price) based on the bid side price of the 4.125% U.S. Treasury Note due August 15, 2008 as measured today at 2 p.m. New York City time.
