$5 million approved for NV electric car charging stations

CARSON CITY, Nev. – State regulators have approved NV Energy’s plans to spend $295 million on renewable energy in Nevada in the coming year, including $5 million to build electric car charging stations.

The annual budget the Nevada Public Utilities Commission approved Wednesday also provides grants to help consumers put solar panels in their homes.

Commissioner Bruce Breslow says Gov. Brian Sandoval wants Nevada to be the first state in the West to have an entire electric charging system by 2020.

Officials for NV Energy will work with state officials to determine locations of charging stations on the Nevada Electric Highway. Ratepayers also can apply for incentives to build more.

Sierra Club lawyer Joe Halso says the move will put Nevadans on the road to healthier air, better access to electric vehicle infrastructure and more freedom to power their homes how they please.

I am an electric cars lover. I love our planet and want to leave it in good condition to our children. One of the good ways to do this is to reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere. As a technical person I worked on computers, hardware maintenance and programming. Otherwise I like advanced technologies, music, books, movies, life and nice weather.
