Plug-in and battery electric vehicles (EVs) can help increase energy security, improve fuel economy, lower fuel costs, and reduce emissions. At $1.15/eGallon, operating a vehicle on electricity is $2.40/gallon cheaper than gasoline in Colorado, and on average operating a vehicle on electricity is 1/3 the cost of gasoline throughout the US. Likewise, while operating on electricity, EVs produce no tailpipe emissions.
In an effort to improve air quality and encourage statewide deployment of electric vehicles across Colorado, the Colorado Energy Office (CEO) and the Regional Air Quality Council (RAQC) have partnered to provide financial support for electric vehicles and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) through the Charge Ahead Colorado program.
