NV Energy is requesting a rate increase of 24% and hopes the Nevada Public Utilities Commission will approve it.  The energy company claims this will not show up on customers bills.  But, some consumer advocates are crying foul.  They want to see the 185 million dollars that customers have overpaid to be returned to costumers.  How will these increases really impact consumers?  Why is NV Energy looking for a rate increase when people are being more energy efficient?
