RAQC and Partners Join Governor To Announce Colorado Electric Vehicle Plan

The RAQC and its partners joined Governor John Hickenlooper on Jan. 24 to announce the release of the Colorado Electric Vehicle (EV) Plan, delivering on a directive set forth in the July 2017 Executive Order, “Supporting Colorado’s Clean Energy Transition.” The plan was developed in partnership with the Colorado Energy Office (CEO), RAQC, Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE), and Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT).

The plan details a series of actions supporting EV infrastructure along Colorado’s corridors. It also lays out goals to accelerate adoption of EVs and ensure Colorado remains a leader in the EV market. You can read the full plan here.

National Drive Electric Week 2016


Colorado residents and visitors will be “electrified” the week of Sept. 10-18 when National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) comes back to town. Attendees will get to experience first-hand some of the most popular electric vehicle (EV) models available by visiting one of the six events occurring throughout the metro area.

Charge Ahead Colorado (an EV and infrastructure grant funding program formed in partnership by the Regional Air Quality Council and the Colorado Energy Office) will be available to discuss the myths and benefits of EV ownership, workplace charging opportunities, charging station availability, and the financial and tax incentives associated with EV ownership.

Most area NDEW events give the opportunity for attendees to experience a ride and drive of select EVs and various entertainment activities. For a list of local NDEW events, visit https://driveelectricweek.org/index.php or the Colorado Electric Vehicle Coalition (CEVC) events calendar at http://refuelcolorado.com/cevc.

House Bill 1332 approved by Colorado legislature


Are you in the market for an electric vehicle?

You’re in luck then.  The process of claiming your tax credit became much easier this summer, with the passage of HB 1332.  Beginning in January 2017, your electric vehicle tax credit will be assignable at point of sale.  That means no more complicated calculations come April when taxes are due.
