NV Energy was hoping to have the support of the gaming industry in their push to move away from coal. But, it turns out that gaming has a lot of concern about this move. What is the political game now between the state's two power industries?
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.Tom Hurst –Apr 17, 2013 19:57:54 PM
