NEVADA POWER REPORTS RATE CASES COMBINED

 NEVADA POWER REPORTS RATE CASES COMBINED
 LAS VEGAS, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Nevada Power Co.'s (NYSE: NVP)


two pending rate applications, filed separately earlier this year, have been combined by the Public Service Commission of Nevada.
 On Jan. 14, the company filed to reduce energy rates by 5 percent or $26.7 million. On Jan. 30, in an effort to recoup construction costs due to heavy growth demands, the company filed a request to recover $38.6 million in general rates or 6.7 percent. The company, citing mounting financial pressure, also requested the commission to implement these new general rates within 30 days.
 Though the interim rate request was denied, combining the two cases does provide the company some relief. Under normal circumstances, the new lower energy charge would have taken effect March 1. By combining the cases, the commission has kept the higher energy charges in effect until a decision in both cases is rendered in July.
 Charles A. Lenzie, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, said that the commission's decision to combine the cases will help. "This decision will have a positive effect on our cash flow situation which has been drained by the heavy construction demands of the last two years." Lenzie added, "This, coupled with adequate general rate relief this summer will help ease some of the financial strain we've been under."
 Hearings on the company's combined rate case have tentatively been scheduled to begin on May 11. A decision is expected late in July.
