Electric vehicle charging now available at County Administration Building

La Plata County installed its first electric vehicle charging station at the County Administration Building, 1101 East Second Ave., in the north parking lot.

The charging unit is a Type II ChargePoint brand charger that is positioned to charge up to two vehicles simultaneously. It will charge at a rate of approximately 6-7 kilowatts per hour and is intended for partial charge use.

Charging costs $1.08 per hour for the first two hours and $11.08 per hour thereafter.

The project was funded in part by the Regional Air Quality Council and Colorado Energy Office through a program called Charge Ahead Colorado, designed to improve air quality and encourage deployment of electric vehicles across the state.
