Colorado is Keeping Up with EV Charging Goals

Colorado is catching up with the amount of EV chargers their state needs to help EV drivers travel. The state is keeping a steady pace for the number of electric vehicles being sold to reach the federal goal by 2030, but they still have a lot of work to do in terms of publicly available EV charging stations. Thanks to federal funding, grants and incentives it is becoming easier to expand the EV charging network across the state of Colorado, providing lots of public charging stations to EV drivers.

The public chargers are being installed in a variety of areas. They already have some chargers in the garage of the Denver International Airport. A non-profit Drive Clean Colorado has been promoting clean energy to make EV charging stations accessible to people in different locations. EV charging stations still aren’t as available as they should be. Not all multi-family residences have charging stations in their parking lots. Some stations are also too far and in between that it causes range anxiety for long-distance drivers.

“Keep in mind that most people drive less than 40 miles a day, and most cars are parked for hours at a time,” said Drive Clean Colorado Executive Director Bonnie Trowbridge. “So I’d love to see us focus more on EV charging wherever we see parked cars, whether that is in your own garage or driveway, the grocery store parking lot, or long-term parking at the airport.”
