Nevada Referendum Seeks Constitutional Amendment To Implement Retail Electric Choice

February 04,2016

A proposed ballot initiative in Nevada would amend the state's constitution to require implementation of retail electric choice

The proposed initiative, filed as a petition with the Secretary of State, must still complete the qualification process to be put before voters

Among other things, the proposal would amend the constitution to provide that, "Effective upon the dates set forth in subsection 3, every person, business, association of persons or businesses, state agency, political subdivision of the State of Nevada, or any other entity in Nevada has the right to choose the provider of its electric utility service, including but not limited to, selecting providers from a competitive retail electric market, or by producing electricity for themselves or in association with others, and shall not be forced to purchase energy from one provider. Nothing herein shall be construed as limiting such persons' or entities' rights to sell, trade or otherwise dispose of electricity."

Furthermore, the proposal would amend the constitution to provide that, "Not later than July 1, 2023, the Legislature shall provide by law for provisions consistent with this Act to establish an open, competitive retail electric energy market, to ensure that protections are established that entitle customers to safe, reliable, and competitively priced electricity, including, but not limited to, provisions that reduce costs to customers, protect against service disconnections and unfair practices, and prohibit the grant of monopolies and exclusive franchises for the generation of electricity"

The petition for the ballot initiative is being made by Nevadans for Affordable Clean Energy Choices
