Nevada Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (8-NV-c)

Any person who will own, control, operate, or maintain a public utility must obtain a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) from the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada (PUC) before constructing the facility. See NRS 704.330. If the facility is not a public utility, or if it is exempt under NRS 704.021 or NRS 730.340, a CPCN is not required. The term “public utility” includes “[a]ny plant or equipment, or any part of a plant or equipment, within this State for the production, delivery or furnishing for or to other persons, including private or municipal corporations, heat, gas, coal slurry, light, power in any form or by any agency, water for business, manufacturing, agricultural or household use, or sewerage service, whether or not within the limits of municipalities.” See NRS 704.020(2)(a). Based on this definition, it is likely that most transmission projects will require a CPCN.

8-NV-c.1 to 8-NV-c.3 - Is the Transmission Line a Public Utility?

If the transmission line is not a “public utility,” as defined by NRS 704.020 and NRS 704.021 a CPCN is not required. Otherwise, the developer should initiate the CPCN application process.
