EV Infrastructure: The Time is Now

EV Infrastructure: The Time is Now

Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Ordinance

Clark County is considering adopting an electric vehicle ordinance to make electric vehicle (EV) charging more convenient and more widespread.


  • Improve air quality
  • Improve public health
  • Reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions

The actions required to achieve these goals:

  • Reduce car dependency
  • Increase mobility options
  • Electrify transportation

Why Now?
According to Green Car Reports, an October 2019 poll, which surveyed 1,510 drivers in the U.S.:

  • 74 percent of all respondents agreed that electric cars are the future.
  • 61 percent of respondents cited more charging infrastructure as the biggest factor holding back their purchase.

Additional reasons for building EV infrastructure now include:

  • EVs are increasing in market share
  • Every major manufacturer is shifting their production to EVs
  • Clean Cars Nevada
  • Charging is a barrier
  • EV infrastructure upfront is cheaper

What Would the Ordinance Require?
All new buildings must include necessary electrical equipment to install—or enable the installation of—EV charging stations.

Advantages of EV Ready

  • Requires minimum number of EV-installed parking spots at build
  • Requires EV- ready parking spots in a % of total parking spaces
  • Allows future owners, landlords or tenants to easily install charging stations when needed
