Governor Sandoval Electrifies Nevada Highways

Governor Brian Sandoval recently announced plans for the electric highway concept in the summer, which would include charging stations on Nevada's most important intrastate route.  In addition, there are plans to electrify U.S. Highway 93 from Las Vegas to Wells, Nevada.

About 40 people — a mix of Valley Electric Association board members and executives, residents of the small town that is the gateway to Death Valley National Park, employees of Eddie World, an iconic stopover on the seven-hour trip between Las Vegas and Reno, and curious travelers on U.S. Highway 95 — gathered to watch Sandoval and others cut a ribbon marking the official opening of the charging stations.

There are two charging stations at the site with three ports each. Two of the ports have connections that will fully charge a vehicle in four hours, but one of them has a fast charge that can take a vehicle to 80 percent charged within 30 minutes.
