EDITOR'S NOTE: This story was corrected to reflect the hearing is Nov. 10 and the consumer session is Nov. 16.
Nevada’s Public Utilities Commission has set a Nov. 10 hearing on NV Energy’s plan to accelerate the installation of electric vehicle charging stations statewide.
That 9 a.m. hearing will be followed by a consumer session at 6 p.m., on Nov. 16.
The utility application says it will cost a total of $99.8 million, paid for by tariffs and rate changes.
The plan includes an estimated 120 charging sites with a total of 1,822 chargers. The proposal also removes barriers to electric vehicle adoption, increases access in historically underserved communities and develops electric vehicle infrastructure across Nevada’s tourism and outdoor recreation economy.
Components of the plan include interstate corridor charging, urban charging programs, public agencies, transit, school bus and transportation electrification, outdoor recreation and tourism and plan development administration.
The Nov. 10 consumer hearing will feature NV Energy officials and PUCN staff with public comment invited.
The Nov. 16 hearing will be held jointly in Las Vegas and at the PUCN’s Carson City offices on William Street.
