Caesars Installs EV Charging Stations

Caesars Entertainment has integrated new EV charging stations into 13 of its resorts and casinos. In partnership with NV Energy, nearly all of Caesars' Northern and Southern Nevada resorts and casinos now have operational EV charging stations on site, in addition to Harrah's Resort Southern California. A total of 48 charging ports have been installed in guest parking lots as well as valet areas and are available for guests to use at no cost.

Caesars is working to expand the availability of EV charging at its domestic resorts, with the next round of deployment planned for Harrah's New Orleans Hotel & Casino, Harrah's Philadelphia, Harrah's Resort Atlantic City, and Horseshoe Casino Hammond in Indiana.

Caesars' EV charging stations are on the ChargePoint network, allowing drivers to easily check station availability and find charging spots in real time through the ChargePoint mobile app, online, and in car navigation units. The Level 2 charging ports at Caesars' stations accommodate both hybrids and all-electric models using the industry standard J1772 plug and charge vehicles in less time compared to plugging in the average home garage.

"We want to make it easy for our guests to continue their green habits while they stay and play at our resorts. Supporting the adoption of electrical vehicles is important to Caesars, and we are thrilled to make convenient charging another great amenity for our guests," says Eric Dominguez, corporate director of facilities, engineering, and sustainable operations for Caesars Entertainment.

As an early implementer of EV charging technology, Caesars is promoting awareness and encouraging cleaner forms of transportation, which directly ties into the company's low carbon strategy and efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A recipient of the EPA's Climate Leadership Award, Caesars has cut greenhouse gas emissions at its domestic properties by more than 12 percent from 2007 to 2013 on an absolute basis, while reducing energy intensity by 20 percent.
