    First observe that we wouldn't even be having this conversation if we had a free market in energy. Of course, since we instead have a government-enabled pseudo-monopoly, expect that political maneuverings will allow the resort industry to cut a favorable deal with NV Energy, while we citizens will be forced to pay more in order to subsidize that deal.
