RENO, Nev.- The Caesar's Corporation is trying to attract out-of-towners who are environmentally conscious. The company on Friday unveiled 16 new electric-car charging stations at its Northern Nevada locations.
There are four at the corner of Center and Commercial streets in Downtown Reno, and an additional four inside the Harrah's parking garage.
There are also eight charging stations in Stateline. Four of them are at Harrah's and the remaining four are at Harvey's.
"We have been hard at work driving efficiency. Doing things in the properties to use energy more effectively and this is an extension of that strategy. It allows us to tackle transportation related carbon and promote more sustainable actions," said Eric Dominguez, Director of Environmental Affairs for Caesar's.
The charging stations are open to the public, as well as customers of Harrah's.
For a short time, charging will be free for everyone, after that, the public will have to pay a small fee to use the stations.
Charging ports for electric cars are standardized in north america, so all electric cars on the road should be able to use the new chargers.
