26. Boulder City has its own utility.
Edited on Thu Apr-15-10 11:39 PM by Fledermaus
Its not Nevada power as you would have people understand.

At one time the dam provide 100% of the power for the city.

When I lived there I paid half what people in Las Vegas paid.

Even today its 50% less than Las Vegas...

The city is currently collecting rent for two of the present solar power plants, and is currently considering a trade of power for the third power plant.

FYI, when you pay your electric bill in Boulder City you make your check payable to "Boulder City" not "Nevada Power" as you claim.

You are just completely wrong or purposefully being misleading.
