GRAND JUNCTION — Colorado has awarded a $10.three million grant for California-based ChargePoint Inc. to put in electrical automobile charging stations alongside a number of main highways within the state.
The Each day Sentinel experiences the grant from the Colorado Power Workplace will fund the set up of 33 fast-charging stations throughout the state.
Stations will likely be positioned alongside sections of Interstate 70 from Grand Junction to Denver; U.S. Freeway 50 to Montrose; U.S. Freeway 550 in Silverton and Durango; and alongside U.S. Freeway 160 between Cortez and Pagosa Springs.
Workplace govt director Kathleen Staks says the stations will likely be positioned in areas that “present easy accessibility, proximity to facilities and 24/7 charging skill.”
The grant is a part of a multi-state venture to spice up the variety of charging stations to encourage the sale of electrical autos.
