Carson City, NV - December 05, 2018
NV Energy, in
coordination with the Governor’s Office of Energy (GOE), recently issued a
request-for-proposals (RFP) to qualified bidders to construct electric vehicle
(EV) charging stations as part of the Nevada Electric Highway (NEH)
The NEH is a
partnership program between the Governor’s Office of Energy, Nevada Department
of Transportation, Nevada’s electric utilities, and private commercial host
sites to expand the state’s EV charging infrastructure by placing charging
stations at strategic locations along Nevada’s highways. The goal is to complete an “electric highway”
system serving the entire State by the end of 2020.
Approximate site locations can be found on the GOE’s website
by visiting http://energy.nv.gov/Programs/Nevada_Electric_Highway/
NV Energy has created a webpage (https://www.nvenergy.com/cleanenergy/electric-vehicles/evhighway)
for potential EV host sites to express interest in hosting the EV charging
infrastructure. Once the successful bidders are selected, collected host site
information will be shared with the bidder for further evaluation, and
potential utilization of the site as a part of the Program.
