On October 28, 2021, Sierra Pacific Power Company d/b/a NV

Energy (“SPPC”) filed with the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada

(“Commission”) an application, designated as Docket No. 21-10027

(“Application”), for authority to establish capital issuance authorizations

based on a debt ceiling of $1,900.0 million, a common stock ceiling of

$2,200.0 million, and a preferred stock ceiling of $500.0 million, and

enter into anticipatory financial hedging transactions.

SPPC filed the Application pursuant to the Nevada Revised Statutes

(“NRS”) and Nevada Administrative Code (“NAC”) Chapters 703

and 704, including, but not limited to, NRS 704.322 through 704.328
