Nevada's Public Utilities Commission is moving forward with an investigation into whether Valley Electric Association can legally provide services to Creech Air Force Base. The state's largest utility,NV Energy, filed a complaint with the PUC in February arguing that Valley Electric is operating outside its legal service area. In Fall 2012, the US Department of Defense awarded Valley Electric ownership and operation of the distribution system at Creech, as part of a $23 million contract.
