Event Report

We successfully unveiled the first DC Fast Charging station in the EV Trail network and exposed a couple people to the joys of electric vehicles.

Event Description


Social distancing and masks are required at all in-person Drive Electric Earth Day 2021 events. Please see this information about how to improve how your mask protects you. For more information, see our in-person event safety requirements.

EV Trail has worked behind the scenes managing COVID, weather and political delays in launching the first DC Fast Charging station in the network. We now will be doing our ribbon cutting on Earth Day as we cut in half Colorado's longest I-25 charging gap. Currently, there is a 92-mile gap between Trinidad and Pueblo with no DC Fast Charging stations and no Tesla Supercharging stations. After our ceremonial flipping of the switch and ribbon cutting, the longest gap will be 46 miles.

This is a great opportunity to see what driving an electric vehicle is all about by visiting with EV owners and learning the basics of charging an EV.

Thanks also to our local sponsors, EV Trail and George's Drive Inn.
