Despite COVID-19 shutting down business as usual, Nevada utilities companies grew over the past year. New customers signed on. New pilot programs started up. New agreements between agencies were entered into. New sources for commodities and renewable resources were found. Disconnects for nonpayment were suspended in response to the pandemic.
“Utilities in Nevada have been very resilient over the past year, and we have continued to see strong growth,” said John Hester, president and CEO, Southwest Gas. The utility has two million customers throughout the west in Arizona, Nevada and California, and in the past year, 37,000 new customers signed on. “A lot of the growth that we’re seeing in Nevada is related to the booming housing industry,” Hester added. The majority of new homes use natural gas.
