Boyd Gaming Corporation has filed with the Nevada PUC to take competitive electricity supply and purchase energy, capacity, and/or ancillary services from a provider of new electric resources pursuant to Chapter 704B of the Nevada Revised Statutes and Chapter 704B of the Nevada Administrative Code.
Boyd is the owner and operator of numerous hotels and casinos and related facilities located in Nevada Power Company's d/b/a NV Energy ("NPC" or "Company") service territory and that are the subject of this Application. These hotels and casinos include the Orleans Hotel & Casino, Gold Coast Hotel & Casino, Main Street Station Hotel, California Hotel & Casino, Fremont Hotel & Casino, Sam's Town Hotel & Casino, Eastside Cannery, Suncoast Hotel & Casino, Aliante Station Hotel & Casino, and Cannery Casino Hotel. Boyd presently receives electric service from NPC.
Each facility is a non-governmental commercial end-use customer in the service territory of NPC that annually consumes more than 8,760,000 kilowatt hours of energy alone, at its contiguous property locations or at its service locations that are treated as a single service location for billing purposes, Boyd said
Boyd's current annual load for purposes of its exit application is approximately 231,500 MWh with an average hourly load of approximately 26.5 MW and a coincident peak load of approximately 35 MW. The maximum megawatts estimated to be delivered under the proposed transaction with its competitive provider is approximately 37 MW.
Boyd has selected Tenaska Power Services Co. as its provider, and initial term of the agreement is to be no longer than seven (7) years
Boyd is seeking to take competitive supply effective September 1, 2019
