In response to the defeat of Question 3 in Nevada, the Retail Energy Supply Association (RESA) has issued a call for energy choice and accountability in the state.
Specifically, the national group of retail energy suppliers is asking lawmakers to pass a bill allowing the 314,000 Nevadans who voted in favor of Question 3 to be allowed to choose their own energy supplier, and they are asking that NV Energy be held accountable for their promises during the Question 3 campaign.
Among the promises RESA wants NV Energy to keep are guarantees that current and planned clean energy initiatives and the state’s rooftop solar power program will be kept in place, and that the company will provide low rates and reliable service to consumers.
In addition, RESA is asking that NV Energy be held accountable through a legislative investigation for the expenditure of a landmark $63 million in opposition to Question 3.

“While RESA members are disappointed in the outcome, we are not shocked,” said RESA President Darrin Pfannenstiel in a press release. “Opponents to choice, competition and free enterprise spent a great deal of time and money attempting to scare voters with false claims about risks, reliability and costs. Now that the election is over, we hope that NV Energy will keep its end of the bargain.”
