Electric Vehicles driven in Nevada provide the greatest emissions reductions (compared to gas powered cars) of any state in the region. EVs save their drivers up to $1,264 per year in fuel and maintenance costs and provides economy growth and new jobs. These benefits will continue to grow as the electricity grid transitions from fossil fuel to renewable energy.
Nevada's EV market expands as automakers introduce more varied and affordable EV models and the network of charging stations expands across the state. A new report from the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP) shows that electric vehicles will save Nevada's consumers money, help the state economy, and protect the environment.
We have a real opportunity for Nevada to drive toward a cleaner energy future.
