The Alterative Fuels Data Center Station Locator tool is a great way to find charging locations in Colorado and other states. You can map a route or find EVSE in your neighborhood!
The price of currently available Level 2 EVSE varies, but typically is in the range of $1,000 to $2,000 before incentives. Typically, installation is relatively inexpensive for businesses that already have electrical service that can accommodate Level 2 EVSE. Check with your utility and a trusted electrical contractor before installing EVSE or modifying your electrical system. There is a cost differential between interior and exterior costs.

Whether you are a business who wants to provide EV charging for your employees, a business that wants to attract EV drivers or a fleet manager who wants to incorporate EVs into your fleet, there are a few things to consider upfront. If you are ready to jump on board and want to encourage EV adoption, you might consider incentives and programs such as:
- Parking discounts for EV owners
- Preferential parking accommodations
- Free charging for customers or employees
- Employee financing programs
Based on the available data, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) does not believe that electric vehicles pose a greater risk of fire than gasoline-powered vehicles. However, as a fleet manager, you’ll want to make sure that employees are both excited about the additions to your fleet and that they also understand some of the differences they can expect.

Fleets use vehicles differently than the general public. As a business owner, you will need to understand the requirements of your vehicles and drivers including:
- Vehicle usage patterns (number of miles traveled, number of stops, how long at each stop, etc.)
- Employee handling and safety training
- Charging capabilities with adequate capacity 208-240-volt (for Level II charging)
