RENO, NEVADA (KOLOTV.com) -- Saturday, January 13, 2007:
The record low temperatures in our area aren't just breaking pipes, they may be breaking the bank for some of you who heat with natural gas.
Sierra Pacific reports record usage of natural gas today at 1,000,000 therms. That record was set overnight, and could do so again tonight.
Sierra Pacific says natural gas is the most commonly used energy to heat homes here in Northern Nevada. There are currently 144,000 gas customers.
Not everyone gets their natural gas from Sierra Pacific Power. We Carsonites get gas from Southwest Gas. Our rates are ALSO high!!!! Not everything happens to just people in RENO
