The company behind the construction of the new Raiders stadium in Las Vegas, also known as Las Vegas Stadium, has filed an application with the Nevada Public Utilities Commission in to leave NV Energy.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, LV Stadium Events Co. Chief Operating Officer Don Webb said the company wants to preserve its option to choose an energy provider. The Raiders believe that the stadium’s energy delivery services will begin around April and anticipate the stadium’s annual load will reach 50 megawatt-hours per year with a peak load of 18 megawatts, according to documents filed with the PUC.
The stadium, while under construction, is using power supplied by NV Energy through a contractor. The commission will discuss the company’s application to leave NV Energy today.

In June, NV Energy contracted for more than 1 gigawatt of new renewable energy resources to be built in Nevada, which the utility says is the largest clean energy investment in the state’s history. The resource plan filing requires PUC approval, and is contingent on a statewide ballot question to open the electric energy market.
The plan calls for six solar energy projects and three related battery-energy storage resources with 100 megawatts of capacity. If everything moves forward, the projects should be completed and serving customers by the end of 2021, NV Energy says.
“These six projects will be added to NV Energy’s current portfolio of 51 geothermal, solar, hydro, wind, biomass and supported rooftop solar projects — bringing NV Energy’s total renewable energy portfolio to more than 3.2 gigawatts of renewable energy in Nevada,” the utility said.
