Las Vegas is Going Green with Personal Electric Vehicle Charging Station on the Strip

MGM Resorts International debuted the first Electric Vehicle Charging Station on the Las Vegas Strip. This new Charging Station is located at the valet entrance to The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, between Mandalay Bay and Luxor resorts.

Charging service is available free of charge to retail and resort customers driving personal electric vehicles, like the Nissan LEAF and the Chevy Volt.

“I couldn’t be more proud that Mandalay Place is first with this forward-thinking program,” said Chef Rick Moonen, best-selling author and one of the world’s leading advocates for the use of sustainable seafood in the food industry. “Someone has to take the leadership role and I’m happy MGM Resorts is willing to move toward a better way of doing things.”

Chef Moonen, known for his appearances on national television programs like Bravo’s “Top Chef,” also operates the two rm seafood restaurants inside The Shoppes at Mandalay Place.

MGM Resorts energy experts say this is an important first step that reflects the Company’s continued commitment to environmental responsibility in the hospitality industry.

Go Green and Go to Vegas!
