The stations were made possible through a $50,000 grant made earlier this year by the Consumer Electronics Association, (CEA), owner and producer of the International CES, the world’s largest annual innovation event. As part of International CES, which is held every January at the Las Vegas Convention Center, CEA provides funding to local organizations to advance clean energy and sustainable living.

“CEA has been a great partner with the Las Vegas community throughout its 35+ years in the destination,” said Terry Jicinsky, the LVCVA’s senior vice president of operations. “We’re proud to be able to offer visitors another green option at the Las Vegas Convention Center while also representing the innovation and ingenuity in the consumer electronics industry.”

“The International CES is proud and thankful to call Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Convention Center home, and we at CEA are committed to helping Las Vegas be green,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CEA. “These electric vehicle charging stations will benefit Las Vegas for years to come.”

Located in the Gold parking lot next to the Visitor Information Center, these are the first electric vehicle charging stations at the convention center and will be used as a prototype for future stations as the demand increases. The level 2 universal chargers have an amperage of 40A and voltage of 208/240VAC. The covered charging stations are provided as a complimentary service to visitors.

CES returns to Las Vegas January 7-10, 2014, bringing an estimated 155,000 delegates and generating nearly $195 million in local non-gaming economic impact. Las Vegas’ meeting and convention industry supports 58,000 local jobs and generates more than $6.8 billion for the local economy.
