Douglas County legal - 26243





On July 5, 2022, Nevada Power Company d/b/a NV Energy (“NPC”) and Sierra Pacific Power

Company d/b/a NV Energy (“SPPC”) (collectively, “NV Energy”) filed with the Public Utilities

Commission of Nevada (“Commission”) a joint application, designated as Docket No. 22-07003

(“Joint Application”), for approval of the second amendment (“Second Amendment”) to its 2021

Joint Integrated Resource Plan (“IRP”).

This Notice serves only to notify the public that the Commission has received the above-referenced

filing. It is the responsibility of interested persons to review the filing and monitor the

proceedings to determine their desired levels of involvement based on how this matter may

affect their unique situations. The details provided within this Notice are for informational purposes

only and are not meant to be an all-inclusive overview of the filing. The Commission may

consider and adopt alternative proposals not contained within the filing, but which are related

to the subject matter of the filing and supported by substantial evidence. The Commission will

accept or modify the Joint Application or specify any portions of the Joint Application it deems


NV Energy filed the Joint Application pursuant to the Nevada Revised Statutes (“NRS”) and

the Nevada Administrative Code (“NAC”) Chapters 703 and 704, including, but not limited to,

NRS 704.741 et seq. and 704.751, NAC 704.9005 et seq, and Section 54 of Senate Bill 448

(2021). Due to the timing between its filing in Docket No. 21-06001 and the preparation of its

Joint Application, NV Energy seeks to deviate from the requirement of NAC 704.9516 to provide

an updated load forecast.

In its Joint Application, NV Energy seeks approval of the Second Amendment to their 2021

Joint IRP to amend the Demand Side Management (“DSM”) Plan to satisfy requirements set

forth by Senate Bill 448 (2021) and to continue an existing energy efficiency program and add a

new program to the DSM portfolio that will help meet an energy savings target for each utility of

1.1 percent on average pursuant to NAC 704.9212 and 704.934(2)(d). NV Energy also requests

that this Joint Application be consolidated with Docket No. 22-07004, which is the docket that

considers NV Energy’s 2022 Combined Annual Electric DSM Update Report as it relates to the

Action Plan of their 2022-2041 Joint IRP.

Interested and affected persons may file comments or petitions for leave to intervene electronically

through the Electronic Filing System on the Commission’s website or at either of the

Commission’s offices pursuant to NRS 704.746 or NAC 703.578 through 703.600 on or before
