Sierra Pacific files suit over Mark Twain substation rejection
Sierra Pacific Power Co. has filed suit against Storey County over the
county’s rejection of a substation in the Mark Twain area.
The action was filed Wednesday in the first District Justice Court in Storey
County and asked that the court review the county commission’s upholding of
the Storey County Planning Commission’s recommendations not to grant the
company a special use permit.
The utility seeks to build an Emma substation, a 345,000-volt line and two
additional lines that would run from the Tracy Power Plant in northern
Storey County to the substation.
Sierra Pacific spokesman Fay Anderson said the company was not seeking
monetary damages; the filing was for a petition for judicial review.
