Another hotel casino operator is planning to leave NV Energy and acquire electricity elsewhere.

Peppermill Casinos, Inc., notified the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada that it wants to leave NV Energy. The owner of the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino in Reno is seeking to “purchase energy, capacity, and/or ancillary services from a provider of new electric resources” according to a filing with the PUC dated July 14.

The Peppermill also mentioned renewable energy when asked about its intent to leave NV Energy, touting its $9.7 million investment in on-site geothermal heat generation.

"We are committed to continuing that investment in responsible and renewable energy sources," Parker said.
