Nevada state regulators have approved rules that allow NV Energy to build and own electric vehicle charging stations. The process was initiated following Senate Bill 145, legislation that tasked the utilities commission with creating regulations for a pilot program to promote electric vehicles. In the rule, utility regulators directed NV Energy to set aside $15 million in existing incentive funds to help build out the state’s charging infrastructure. Much of that funding would likely go toward completing the “Nevada Electric Highway,” a priority for Governor Brian Sandoval.
