CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada state regulators are hearing a complaint by the state’s dominant electric utility that a nonprofit consumer cooperative is infringing on its territory by supplying power to a U.S. Air Force base in Indian Springs.

The Nevada Public Utilities Commission rejected a request Tuesday to dismiss NV Energy Inc. accusations that Pahrump-based Valley Electric Association is infringing on its territory with electric service to Creech Air Force Base northwest of Las Vegas.

The commission didn’t immediately set a date for arguments.

The PUC would decide whether a federal contract awarded in September 2012 is outside the jurisdiction of state regulators.

Gov. Brian Sandoval vetoed a proposed state law this month that would have brought Valley Electric under the PUC’s authority.
