Las Vegas Strip Added EV Charging Stations in 2012
Throughout 2012, most of the major hotel chain in Las Vegas hosted ribbon cutting ceremonies to celebrate the opening of public charging stations. In fact, MGM Resorts, Las Vegas Sands Corporation, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Rampart Casino at the Resort at Summerlin and Element Hotel hall inaugurated charging station opening in 2012. It's not just resorts and hotels that are charging up for plug-in vehicles. Several county and city buildings, including the Clark County Government Center, Las Vegas City Hall and North Las Vegas City Hall, entered the mix by installing chargers.
More installations are underway throughout the city. All told, there are already at least 30 charging outlets in the downtown and strip areas of Las Vegas. Outlying areas have at least 30 more plug-in points.
Additionally, the City Council of Las Vegas passed an ordinance that allows drivers of plug-in vehicles to use metered parking sites in the downtown area free of charge. A plug-in vehicle owner only needs to pay a one-time fee of $10 to the city for a special parking decal.
