Efficiency Works unveils new initiative for businesses
A new rebate of up to $5,000 to help install public Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in northern Colorado is now available from Efficiency Works. The initiative aims to improve access to public EV charging stations in Estes Park, Fort Collins, Longmont and Loveland.
“The new EV charging infrastructure rebate aligns with Platte River’s long-term goal of 100% noncarbon electricity generation for our owner communities,” said Jason Frisbie, general manager and chief executive officer at Platte River Power Authority. “The rebate will enable businesses across northern Colorado to build out Level 2 EV chargers, expanding a zero-emission vehicle infrastructure network and supporting the elimination of air pollutants from the transportation sector.”
Customers with commercial electric service from Estes Park Power and Communications, Fort Collins Utilities, Longmont Power & Communications and Loveland Water and Power are eligible for the rebate. Rebate funds can be used for expenses related to preparing a site for EV charging equipment installation, such as trenching, underground wiring, new meters and concrete, which comprise much of the cost to install an EV charger. The charging equipment must be installed in a location accessible to the public.
Efficiency Works programs are available to residential and commercial customers of Estes Park Power and Communications, Fort Collins Utilities, Longmont Power & Communications and Loveland Water and Power.
