Dear NV Taxpayers - whom I hope soon will stop funding higher ed; and that funding comes from businesses only; and K-12 funding comes from property owners only. Lookup NV education funding - K-12 funding from property owners - higher ed from businesses. Regarding the power issue -- who forgot to pay the bill? Did NV Energy cut you off like they do so many if you don't make your payment? I like NV Energy. Just don't get on their bad side. First of all, the energy grid to the University is vital to the stability of research. The number of research projects affected is not infinite, but finite, and we should know about those affected research projects negatively affected. The funding for research in the millions requires laboratories to be unaffected by infrastructure outages and policy issues. What bothers me is that the energy grid is right next to other vital grids like St. Mary's, Renown Health, and Model Dairy. My business exists within these three grids for one reason only; 1st to go down; 1st to come up, and the last to fail ever for more than 4 hours ever in terms of a power energy SLA. 200 S. Virginia should be in the same grid, but I am not sure which but obviously the University and 200 S. Virgina should share the same grid; and if they did, this would not be an issue - ever. UNR management - please wake-up! Get your house in order, and power should have been the first thing since we do everything (on-net, off-net, online and offline) today requiring electricity. Also UNR policies often shut down research in the name of campus policy, and disregard research. That is an untapped issue from the Office of Research un-reported for years. Be well and Happy Holidays.
