Colorado will soon begin reaping rewards from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law passed by Congress last year, with the Biden Administration announcing a $5 billion construction project to build out a national network of electric vehicle charging stations. Of that amount, Colorado is slated to receive roughly $56.6 million over five years to support the buildout of an EV charging network in the state.

“Building out our electric vehicle charging station infrastructure is going to help cut climate pollution, provide healthier air for Colorado families, and create good jobs,” said Dan Grossman, EDF Colorado Director. “And it will let more Americans skip paying at the pump, by making electric vehicles a practical choice for more working families.

We thank President Biden for quickly moving these funds to support our communities.”
