COYOTE SPRINGS, Nev. (AP) - Officials in Nevada flipped the switch to provide electricity to a 67-square-mile planned community that currently consists of a golf course and plans for nearly 160,000 homes about 50 miles north of Las Vegas.

A ceremony at the Coyote Springs Golf Club marked the occasion, and developer Albert D. Seeno Jr. issued a statement Wednesday calling the ability for the Lincoln County Power District to provide power to Coyote Springs a milestone for the 43,000-acre project straddling the Clark and Lincoln county lines.

The move means two noisy diesel-powered generators can be idled, and Wingfield Nevada Group Holding Co. can move forward with water treatment and sewer facilities.

Officials also called the power supply crucial to providing Internet and telephone service to the Coyote Springs Golf Club.
