Denver will be an electric vehicle charging corridor, bridging east and west coast routes

Two routes pass directly through Denver, and we’re also along the lone connection between more intricate networks to the east and west.

In an announcement yesterday, the Obama Administration outlined a plan to establish “48 national electric vehicle charging corridors on our highways” covering 25,000 miles in 35 states.

The move comes as the agreement on climate change established in Paris last year officially goes into effect, today in fact, and is part of the U.S.’s commitment to lowering emissions.

You bet your bottom dollar Colorado’s one of them. Not only do we have two routes passing directly through Denver, we’re also along the lone connection route between more intricate networks on the eastern and western parts of the country.
