Nevada Marks Opening Of I-15 Electric Vehicle Charging Sites

(Steve Marcus/Las Vegas Sun via AP)

Interstate 15 crossing southern Nevada from California to Arizona has become the first route in the U.S. West to be designated as an electric vehicle corridor with charging stations available at least every 50 miles.

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak marked what he called a successful collaboration between state agencies, utilities and private industries at a ceremony last week at a truck stop charging station in Mesquite, some 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

A similar facility opened in November in Jean, Nevada about 42 miles southwest of Las Vegas.
