NV Energy Applauded on Times Square

0A 23-story-high electronic billboard in Times Square this week recognized the small team of employees at the Las Vegas-area Sun Peak Generating Station for working 25 years without a lost-time accident. Remarkably, this is the second time an NV Energy power plant team has experienced such national attention – as the northern Nevada Fort Churchill Generating Station crossed the 25-year milestone in 2012.

NV Energy President and CEO Paul Caudill noted that the company’s top operational priority is safety. “My colleagues at Sun Peak have taken that priority to heart, demonstrating attention to detail and helping each other avoid unsafe conditions or acts. Our greatest desire is that they return home safely every day,” Caudill said.

Kevin Geraghty, Senior Vice President of Energy Supply, added that the 25-year milestone is rare in the industry and especially important and impressive, considering the power plant environment of high temperatures, high pressures and high voltages. “I am very proud of this team’s longstanding safety accomplishment, as they work around the clock to provide vital electricity service to our customers,” Geraghty said.

The Sun Peak Generating Station utilizes three simple-cycle combustion turbines to produce electricity, which are especially important during the hot summer months when customer needs are at the highest. The natural gas-fueled plant also provides emergency back-up service for other members of the NV Energy fleet of generating resources. It employs five individuals on a rotating basis and can produce enough electricity to serve approximately 125,000 Nevada households.
