NV Energy buys power plant for $77 million

NV Energy/Nevada Power purchased the Southern Nevada Water Authority’s 25 percent stake in a land parcel and natural gas-fueled power plant at Apex in the first quarter of 2017, county records show.

NV Energy now fully owns the 520 Megawatt Silverhawk Generating Station that sits on just over 84 acres at 15111 Apex Power Parkway, Jennifer Schuricht, an NV Energy spokesperson, said in an email. That effective date was April 1, she said.

The transaction value was $77 million, according to county records.

The SNWA and NV Energy have owned the property together since 2006, county records show.

Nevada Power owns about 15 power plants across the state, which provide power to about 1.3 million customers, along with the more than 40 million annual visitors to Las Vegas, according to NV Energy’s website. The company has both renewable and other power supplies.

Credit One Bank progresses on its new headquarters

Las Vegas-based Credit One Bank, a national credit card issuer, is making progress on its 152,000-square-foot project in the southwest part of Las Vegas — soon to be its new headquarters.

Construction crews raised 22, 65-foot wall panels at the site of Credit One’s new four-story office building in March. The project sits south of the 215 Beltway, between Durango and Buffalo drives.

Crews broke ground on the tilt-up construction project, where concrete walls are constructed on the ground and then raised up, in December 2016. The project is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2017.

Credit One has been in Nevada since the late 1990s. The company was originally based out of San Rafael, California.

The company has grown significantly since it came to Southern Nevada — going from between 1 million and 2 million customers to more than 7 million credit card holders today.

After getting too large for its current headquarters at 585 Pilot Road and seeking better logistics for its current employees, Credit One leadership decided to build. The company purchased 24 acres for $20.8 million in May 2016, Clark County records show. The land parcel has room for up to four buildings of similar size, according to Credit One.

Credit One’s new facility will be able to house up to 1,000 new employees, including up to 400 new technical, analytical and marketing workers. There are about 500 employees at Credit One.
