State regulators are expected to decide next week on whether three major gaming companies can leave Nevada Power Co. and secure their own electricity supplies on the open market.
All three exit applications by MGM Resorts International, Wynn Resorts and Las Vegas Sands Corp. are on the agenda for the Nevada Public Utilities Commission for possible action Dec. 2.
The three companies represent a large share of the utility’s demand.
MGM, with its multiple properties, is the largest at 4.86 percent of Nevada Power’s annual energy sales. MGM has said it fully intends to leave the utility, a part of NV Energy, if the application is approved.
