Roulette tables, and slot machines move over because MGM Resorts has installed the first electric vehicle charging station on the Las Vegas Strip.
The charging station is currently located at The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, between the Mandalay Bay and Luxor resorts. The great thing about this station is that, charging is free for retail and resort customers driving Nissan LEAF vehicle and Chevrolet Volt car.
To use the MGM Resorts electric car owners/drivers pull into one of the two designated parking spaces and plug- in their vehicle. To make the process easier and quicker, each charging station has a touch-screen with step-by-step instructions.
“Consumer demand for this type of equipment is just in its earliest stages, but like anything new, its growth must be fostered by those who believe in it most,” said Cindy Ortega, MGM Resorts senior vice president of energy & environmental services. “Now is the most important time for companies like MGM Resorts to show our support, so others—consumers, car manufacturers and rental car agencies—feel comfortable enough to enter this important emerging market.”
