Governor Sandoval, Office of Energy, and NV Energy Announce Nevada Electric Highway

Governor Brian Sandoval, the Office of Energy, and NV Energy are soliciting interest from business and government entities along U.S. Route 95 that would like to host charging stations and support electric vehicle infrastructure development throughout the state.

The Nevada Electric Highway joint initiative by NV Energy and the State of Nevada represents the next phase in expanding the state’s charging infrastructure to support electric vehicle owners by connecting the urban centers in Clark and Washoe counties. Electric vehicles offer a lower-cost fueling option for drivers, avoid fuel-price uncertainty compared to fluctuating gasoline prices, and are more environmentally friendly.

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval said the efforts to support electric vehicle use in the state benefit both the Nevada environment and the Nevada economy.
