CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada state regulators are hearing a complaint by the state's dominant electric utility that a nonprofit consumer cooperative is infringing on its territory by supplying power to a U.S. Air Force base in Indian Springs.

The Nevada Public Utilities Commission rejected a request Tuesday to dismiss NV Energy Inc. accusations that Pahrump-based Valley Electric Association is infringing on its territory with electric service to Creech Air Force Base northwest of Las Vegas.

The Las Vegas Sun reports the commission didn't immediately set a date for arguments.

The PUC would decide whether a federal contract awarded in September 2012 is outside the jurisdiction of state regulators.

Gov. Brian Sandoval vetoed a proposed state law this month that would have brought Valley Electric under the PUC's authority.
