NV Energy Issues Request for Proposals for Construction of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Along Nevada Highways

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) Program. 

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.
