The EVCS in Beatty is the first of four to open, as part of the Governor’s Office of Energy’s planned 448-mile “Electric Highway” aimed at allowing drivers to travel the stretch along Highway 95 between Las Vegas and Reno, in short range electric vehicles.
The Beatty site is being managed by VEA and has two charging stations, with three ports each. Two of the ports take approximately four hours for a full charge, while the third port will charge a vehicle to 80 percent capacity in 30 minutes.
