Wayne W. Nelson, CEO and General Manager

From Our CEO

“It seems simple. A flip of a switch to light your home, or a turn of the faucet to fill a glass. And that’s how it should be: simple and reliable. But there’s a lot of work behind the scenes here at Clark Public Utilities that goes into making sure you don’t have to think twice about your family’s electric and water service.

Keeping your power on and providing clean water is our top priority. We work all year long to maintain the most reliable system possible, at the lowest possible cost. And any time you call, you’ll get a real person, right here in Clark County, to help you.

As a public utility we are always working to be the best stewards of our resources as possible. That includes natural as well as financial resources. It’s all part of our responsibility to you as a customer, and to the Clark County communities we serve.”
