Hello Everybody - I just wanted to bring everybody up to date on the next Agenda Hearing where we will most likely see a vote on any preliminary order that has been written up by the PUCN concerning:
a.) The type of meter the PUCN will order NVE to use for opt out customers.
b.) The fees (if any) associated with opting out of smart meters.
The PUCN told me late yesterday afternoon that there is going to be a special Agenda Hearing dedicated to the opt out fees under docket #[masked] at 9:30am on Tuesday Nov. 27th at both Carson City and Las Vegas PUCN Headquarters. I will monitor the PUCN calendar for updates, but because of the Thanksgiving Holiday and the requirement to have a copy of the preliminary order to us 3 days prior to the hearing, we will most likely see a copy of the preliminary order by November 20th, which is the Tuesday before the Thanksgiving Holiday. I will follow-up if there are any other changes.
Will be in touch with any developments,
Also, here is an opportunity to serve in the communities listed below: Applicants Sought for Town Advisory Boards, Citizens Advisory Councils

The TABs and CACs serve an important advisory and liaison function relaying concerns and other important information between unincorporated towns and the County government. The boards and councils hold public meetings at least once a month to discuss and make recommendations on long-term planning, zoning changes, public works projects, County programs and ordinances that may affect their town
