Avoid the High Summer Electric Bills!

You can simplify your budget and avoid high summer electric bills by knowing exactly how much your utility bill will be each month. This is possible through the City’s Equal Payment Program.  The last 12 months of your utility costs will be averaged, enabling you to pay the exact same amount on a monthly basis.  Your monthly billing statement will still show exact costs of the billing cycle and consumption in case you want to keep track of your usage.  The Equal Pay application can be found at

Did you know that the City offers an Energy Assistance Program (35% discount) for low income individuals? In addition, the State of Nevada has an energy assistance program. You can find application information for the State at Once you are approved for the State assistance, you will automatically be qualified and enrolled in the City’s Energy Assistance Program.

Another way to reduce costs is to improve the energy efficiency of your home through Nevada’s Housing Division’s Weatherization Assistance Program.  For eligibility information, visit
