Event Report

National Drive Electric Week in Las Vegas was staged at the Springs Preserve museum parking lot on Saturday, Sept. 10, from 10 AM to noon under a photovoltaic solar canopy that tracks the sun during the day and provided power two ChargePoint stations, each with two SAE J1772 AC Level 2 ports. DC Solar provided an additional solar-powered trailer with a third portable ChargePoint station that also had two AC Level 2 ports.

Sponsoring organizations included Las Vegas Electric Vehicle Association, Sierra Club Toiyabe Chapter, Clean Energy Project, SolarNV, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, DC Solar, NV Energy, Verdek, ChargePoint and ClipperCreek, whose sales representative Erik Mason donated an HCS-40 AC Level 2 EVSE as a door prize.

EVs included 10 Nissan LEAFs; five Chevrolet Volts; Tesla Motors Models X, S and Roadster; Mitsubishi i-MiEV, a vintage 1981 Jet Electrica, and custom 1987 Aztec Kit car conversion.
