Charging stations at state parks mean Coloradans can recharge EVs while they recharge in nature

You shouldn’t have to choose between saving the planet and visiting our public lands.
That’s why Environment Colorado launched a campaign to get electric vehicle chargers installed at every Colorado state park, expanding access to our lands and wild places to people who get there using EVs. And in March, we won: Under a partnership between the state and EV company Rivian, all 42 state parks will get at least two chargers — at no installation cost to taxpayers.
“We can adopt a trail. We can adopt a mile,” said Hannah Collazo state director with Environment Colorado to CPR News, on the potential for more company-sponsored EV chargers like these. “Why can’t people adopt EV chargers?” 
Rivian will also maintain the chargers for 25 years.
