Electric Vehicle Infrastructure & Readiness Plan

About this Project

In June 2020, the Town of Estes Park began work on an Electric Vehicle Infrastructure and Readiness Plan (EV Plan). The Estes Park EV Plan will explore several vehicle classes including electric bicycles (e-bikes), electric passenger vehicles, the Town's fleet, as well as local transit.

The key goals of this effort are to:

  1. Guide the community in making strategic decisions over the next ten years as it relates to transportation electrification.
  2. Develop a strategy to support electric vehicle owners, local residents and visitors.
  3. Maximize the Town's existing investment in EV charging infrastructure and the new grant-funded electric trolley.

This effort, coupled with the 100 percent renewable energy generation set by Platte River Power Authority, provides an opportunity to make a measurable change in Estes Valley's air quality and environmental stewardship.

Several opportunities for stakeholder input will be offered during the planning process, which will wrap up in late November.
