MGM Resorts Begins Largest Installation of EV Stations

MGM Resorts International has started the largest installation of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in Nevada. 



Twenty-seven EV charging stations will be located at nine of the company’s Las Vegas resorts, with additional stations at Circus Circus Reno. The charging stations, which will be installed in guest garages and valet areas, will be available for employees and guests to use at no cost.

“It is important that our guests have the convenience and ability to continue sustainable habits during their time with us,” says Cindy Ortega, chief sustainability officer of MGM Resorts International. “The installation of these charging stations encourages green practices in both our guests and employees, serving as a natural step toward smarter, cleaner transportation systems.”

Drivers will be able to access information about the ChargePoint EV charging stations with a mobile application, which shows whether a station is open, the percentage of charge on the vehicle, when the vehicle is fully charged, and when a charging nozzle has been removed.

Four charging stations at Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand Las Vegas, and Circus Circus Reno have already been installed and are fully operational. Installation of the remaining stations is expected by the end of this month. MGM Resorts installed its first charging stations in 2011 at the Shoppes at Mandalay Place and the Shops at Crystals. In 2012, an additional station was installed at its corporate office.
