The energy office and the Colorado Department of Transportation announced the company Charge Point will build what is called an EV Corridor, allowing drivers to conveniently drive across the state. The stations equipped with high speed chargers will cut down charging time by 25%.

Some of the first will be in Moffat County, Salida, Estes Park, Fairplay and Steamboat Springs.
