Complaint Review: Tony Sanchez, NV Energy -
Tony Sanchez, NV Energy – Lobbyist for NV Energy Nevada
Don’t let Tony Sanchez’s fancy title fool you. He’s called Senior Vice President, Government and Community Strategy for NV Energy, but just think about that. What does a person with a title like that actually do?
Let’s break it down. Simply put, he’s a narrative shaper. When it comes to corporate double-speak about how solar energy will somehow raise usage rates – he’s your man to shape the talking points. Check this out – here’s how NV Energy is shaping the conversation around that: NV Energy has relied on one core argument related to customers using solar panels (NV Energy hates solar and lobbies against it vigorously) – that they are not paying their fair share for the electric grid, and are therefore making electricity more expensive for other customers who don’t have the solar panels. Ooh, way to turn that one around on the consumer. Nice, huh?
When it comes to obscene profiteering by a utility company at the expense of the consumer – he’s your guy. NV Energy lobbyists have been fighting information contained in a report from the Energy and Policy Institute stating that, “NV Energy’s own documents reveal that it has been profiting from its customers by tens of millions of dollars per year more than regulators allowed since 2012. In total, the utility has “overearned” in Nevada by $180 million from 2012 to 2016 beyond the profit it was supposed to be allowed to earn … “
But the genius lobbyists at NV Energy, led by Senior Vice President of Government and Community Strategy Tony Sanchez continued to try to make solar the bad guy, point to what they say were unfair rates they had to pay to customers who produced excess energy via solar power, which they fed into the grid. (That’s a key part of a program known as net metering.) And they continue to lobby for rate hikes because of net metering costs even in the face of their own figures that show year after year of “overearning.”
Nice. Slick Tony Sanchez. He’s your guy, all right.
