The newest advert for “Sure on 3” is an instance of the conceitedness, smugness and hubris of massive capital. Supporters of this fall’s Query Three really throw in our face how a lot money three of Nevada’s greatest firms have saved by dumping NV Vitality and taking their huge shopping for energy into an open market. Anyone on the market assume that’s how it’ll work for us? It isn’t.
The advert goes on to say “No on 3” is financed by NV Vitality to guard its monopoly. In fact it’s, however that’s only a diversion by the sure group. The true query the individuals of this state have to determine is: Does NV Vitality deserve its monopoly? Has the corporate, with oversight by the Public Utilities Fee, finished its job of delivering electrical energy to the individuals at an inexpensive worth per kilowatt-hour? The kwh charge on my present NV Vitality invoice is Three % decrease than it was on the similar time in 2013 and 5.5 % decrease than in 2010.
The corporate, on the prodding of the Legislature, has invested billions in renewable vitality and plans to speculate much more, which might be why environmental teams have joined the “No on 3” coalition.
There’s completely little question Query Three is a boon to the most important firms and their backside strains. However for the residents of Nevada, for small-business individuals and for retirees, it’s a company hustle written into the Structure.
