Lyon County, NV: People Shoot Out Power Lines

Over the past year there have been several incidents of individuals using Sierra Pacific Power Company’s (now doing business as NV Energy) power lines and equipment for target practice and causing major damage.

More recently, vandals’ actions caused power outages for Fernley and surrounding residents, including the Fernley Industrial Park.

This type of vandalism is not just inconvenient for customers when outages occur, but can also be costly to repair and take company employees away from productive work to keep the supply of electricity flowing to customers.
