Electric Vehicle Stations
In July, 2014, the Town of Estes Park installed two electric 70 amp Eaton vehicle chargers on the north side of the municipal parking lot, behind Town Hall, 170 MacGregor Avenue. The chargers are located in two parking spots, designated by signs and the letters "EV", referring to electric vehicles, painted on the parking spaces. These two charging stations support 100% of electric cars. There is a $1 per hour charge, which is made payable by credit or debit cards. Normally it takes approximately three hours to charge an electric vehicle to 100 percent. The charging stations were made possible by a grant from the State of Colorado Energy Office.
In 2018, the Town installed four additional charging stations at the new Estes Park Transit Facility Parking Structure at 691 N. Saint Vrain Ave./U.S. 36. These stations are located outside, on the east side of the structure. They are free to use, courtesy of the Town of Estes Park. There is a 3-hour limit on parking in these spaces.
The Town continues to pursue grants for other projects that encourage environmental sustainability.
