BERGSTROM PARK EV STATION
On June 28, 2019, the City’s only public fully inclusive electric vehicle charging station became operational. Funded by a $9,000 Charge Ahead Colorado grant (with a $2,860 City match), this Chargepoint CT4021-GW1 Dual Port Bollard Mount charging station hopes to tap into the 32K+ cars traveling on US24. The goal is to entice EV owners to stop, rest, picnic, eat, shop, walk and enjoy views of Pikes Peak all while reducing anxiety, noise, odor and air pollution. It stands as a sentinel to the City’s commitment to increasing sustainability in the region and enhancing the EV CO plan statewide.
