MGM Resorts International is partnering with ChargePoint to install 27 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at nine of the company's Las Vegas resorts, Circus Circus Reno and MGM Resorts' main corporate offices.
The charging stations, which will be installed in guest garages and valet areas, will be available for employees and guests to use at no cost. Each charger is equipped with two Level 2 charging ports supplying up to 7.2 kW, a full motion color LCD display and a robust cord retraction system.Â All units will have industry-standard SAE J1772 charging ports.
Additionally, drivers will be able to access real-time information about the ChargePoint 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.
‘The installation of these charging stations encourages green practices in both our guests and employees, serving as a natural step toward smarter, cleaner transportation systems,’ says Cindy Ortega, chief sustainability officer of MGM Resorts International.
