About Colorado Electric Byways
In Spring 2018, the Colorado Energy Office launched the Electric Vehicle (EV) Fast-Charging Corridors infrastructure grant program. This program directly addresses Action #1 in the Colorado Electric Vehicle Plan: Build out Colorado’s EV fast-charging infrastructure through public-private partnerships and in coordination with other programs.
In November 2018, Gov. Hickenlooper and Colorado Energy Office awarded a $10.33 million grant to ChargePoint to build electric vehicle fast-charging stations across the state. The fast-charging stations will be located in communities at 34 sites across six corridors comprising Interstate, State and U.S. Highways – including Lamar and La Junta on the Santa Fe Trail. Once complete, these stations will allow Coloradans to drive anywhere in the state in an electric vehicle.
