Contact: John Gitchell, Environmental Manager, 970-328-8766, john.gitchell@eaglecounty.us 

Aug. 30, 2019 - Eagle County has added an electric vehicle charging station at its El Jebel Community Center, located at 0020 Eagle County Drive in El Jebel. The Level 2 station can charge two vehicles simultaneously.

The new station is free and available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week for drivers visiting the community center or Crown Mountain Park. With this installation, Eagle County now provides public electric vehicle charging at five locations. Drivers can utilize www.PlugShare.com, www.ChargePoint.com and other phone apps to find the locations, types and availability of stations.

Additional charging stations are planned for the Eagle County Regional Airport and Maintenance Service Center park and ride in Gypsum in 2020.

Also, an electric vehicle sales event is underway now through Oct. 31 at several dealers in Glenwood Springs. The special group-buy program is designed to help get Eagle, Garfield and Pitkin county residents into electric cars. Dealer discounts are on top of $5,000 in state tax credits and up to $7,500 in federal credits. Visit http://garfieldcleanenergy.org/ev2019/ for details.
