Nevada: People Shoot Down Power Lines

Over the past year, there have been several incidents of individuals using NV Energy's power lines and equipment for target practice and causing major damage.

Most recently, vandals have damaged separate 60,000-volt and 120,000-volt lines that supply electricity to the Fernley area.

Emergency repair crews had to be called out, and were able to complete repairs and avoid a power outage.
