The Colorado Energy Office (CEO) is pleased to announce the 8 awarded compressed natural gas (CNG) station locations for the first round of statewide funding through the ALT Fuels Colorado grant program. The 8 stations awarded span the entire I-25 corridor, from Trinidad to Ft. Collins, and expand all the way west to Glenwood Springs. By the time station construction is completed, a CNG vehicle will be able to travel the entire north/south distance of the state with access to fueling stations.
The second round of funding will open for application in early 2015. Subsequent rounds will be announced HERE, as well as the program distribution list. If you would like to be added to the list, contact Transportation Program Manager Wes Maurer.
The ALT Fuels Colorado grant program is a partnership between the Colorado Energy Office (CEO) and the Regional Air Quality Council (RAQC), created to award grants for partial funding of compressed natural gas fueling station equipment, and co-located electric vehicle charging and propane auto gas station equipment. The program is designed to remove barriers to the adoption of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs), and address the lack of fueling infrastructure for them. Alt Fuels Colorado will distribute approximately $30 million over four years, between 2014 and 2017, to incentivize adoption of alternative fuel vehicles.
