Extreme heat predicted this weekend

July 3, 2024


Based on recent weather reports, NV Energy expects a heat wave to begin today for most areas of Nevada, lasting through next week.

NV Energy is proud to have one of the top power reliability rankings in the nation. However, sometimes outages do occur because of events beyond our control, like extreme weather conditions.

Periods of extreme heat may cause isolated issues on NV Energy’s infrastructure, including equipment failure that can result in outages.

NV Energy teams are preparing to be able to best serve our customers. NV Energy will have extra crews on standby throughout the weekend to quickly and safely respond to any outages that may occur. We appreciate your patience and understanding, as our crews may need to work in extreme heat conditions to make the necessary repairs and restore power safely.

We encourage customers to review NV Energy's outage preparation tips to prepare ahead of any possible outage. Through NV Energy's outage center, customers can report outages and stay up to date on the number of outages, outage causes, number of customers impacted, and estimated time of restoration.

NV Energy also encourages customers to update their contact information in MyAccount and to sign up for personalized alerts direct to your mobile phone.

Additionally, NV Energy has the following tips that can help customers stay cool and conserve energy during time of extreme heat:

  • Turn off lights and appliances when not in use.

  • If your A/C unit is on the ground, keep the area around it clean and free of obstructions to maintain airflow.

  • Use the energy saver options for as many devices/appliances as possible.

  • Keep windows closed. Keep outside air out and inside air in.

  • Run full loads in your washer and dryer, and use "solar drying".

  • If you are away for the weekend, turn your thermostat up.

During periods of extreme heat, the National Weather Service recommends staying hydrated and avoid the sun between the hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
