Colorado Hints At 150 kW Chargers On Major Highway Corridors
The Colorado Energy Office (CEO) issued a Request for Applications for the ALT Fuels Colorado Electric Vehicle Direct Current Fast-Charging Corridors Grant Program.
33 fast charging station are to be installed along major highways (including I-25, I-70, US 36, US 40, US 50, US 160, US 285 and US 550) with capability of up to 150 kW (CHAdeMO and CCS Combo).
The state intends to support the project with $10 million.
The new chargers should be a valuable extension to just 53 stations at the end of 2017. It will be one of only a few networks with 150 kW chargers.
The question is when the 150 kW network will cover the whole country as the 50 kW network, after several years of progress, still doesn’t cover all major highways.
