The Colorado Energy Office awarded last week a $10.3 million grant to the California-based company ChargePoint, through public-private partnerships and in coordination with other programs, to build electric vehicle fast-charging stations throughout Colorado.

The fast-charging stations will be located in communities at 33 sites across six corridors comprised of Interstate, State and U.S. Highways, according to a press release. The locations include Salida, Gunnison, Alamosa, Cañon City and Fairplay.

The lack of EV fast-charging stations limits the EV drivers chances to engage in intra-and interstate travel and represents a considerable barrier for EV development.

"Fast-charging stations give EV drivers the confidence to reliably travel to all corners of the state," said Governor John Hickenlooper.  

This ALT Fuels Colorado grant also helps implement Colorado's Beneficiary Mitigation Plan and the State’s commitment to the multi-state Regional Electric Vehicle West Memorandum of Understanding.
