Boyd Gaming Looks To Leave NV Energy

Boyd Gaming is looking to leave NV Energy's electricity market and purchase power openly.

That's according to an application the company filed with Nevada's Public Utilities Commission, the state agency that oversees Nevada's electricity market.

Its application says Boyd wants to purchase power from Texas-based Tenaska Power Services, a company already providing electricity to a few other Las Vegas-based resort corporations that have left NV Energy.

Boyd anticipates being able to leave NV Energy by September of next year if its application is approved.

Other companies, like MGM, Las Vegas Sands and Caesars, have already left NV Energy's market.

Station Casinos and the Atlantis Casino in Reno, among other entities, have applied to leave this year.
