New Years Eve

12/27/2018 (Permalink)

Here is a story about some of the safety and concerns that power companies have in regards to New Year's Eve parties.


NV Energy says Mylar balloons easily lead to power outages, and is reminding people with New Year’s Eve coming to keep balloons secure during celebrations.

Mylar balloons are helium-filled balloons coated with a metallic finish. If they come in contact with power lines, they can cause equipment to fail, resulting in a power outage.

NV Energy recommends the following Mylar balloon safety tips:

1. Customers are encouraged to tether Mylar balloons.
2. When disposing of the balloons, puncture them to release the helium. This will prevent the balloons from coming into contact with power lines and causing a power outage. 
3. Do not try to retrieve the balloon from the power line, instead please contact NV Energy at 775-834-4100 to report the problem.
