Workplace Charging

Workplace charging effectively promotes Colorado's growing electric vehicle (EV) market. In a study, the U.S. Department of Energy found that employees are six times more likely to drive an EV when charging is available at work.

Benefits of workplace charging include extended range and zero tailpipe emissions for electric commuters, points toward corporate sustainability and LEED certification for buildings, and increased attraction and retention of talent for employers. According to MIT Sloan Management Review, more employees today want to work at companies with a commitment to sustainability and innovation.

The Colorado EV Wired Workplaces program recognizes workplace charging efforts with state and national recognition, a ceremony, and a plaque signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper.
