Later this week, MGM Resorts will announce its intent to offer the state of Nevada's largest installation of charging stations for electric cars. There will be 27 on the Vegas Strip. If you're fluent in geek, here's what they'll offer:
Drivers will be able to access real-time information about the ChargePoint CT4000 EV Charging Stations via 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. These chargers are equipped with two Level 2 charging ports supplying up to 7.2 kW, full motion color LCD display and a robust cord retraction system. All units will have the industry standard SAE J1772 charging ports.
If your eyes are re-focusing now, just know that the stations will be located within the valets and garages of nine MGM Resorts properties -- Circus Circus Reno will receive two as well -- and all will be free to use.
