Colorado Clean Energy Fund and Drive Clean Colorado Partnership – Propelling EV Charging Infrastructure

May 23, 2024

Committed to clean transportation and sustainability, Drive Clean Colorado (DCC) and Colorado Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) are proud to share more about our partnership, aimed at accelerating the equitable adoption of clean transportation and infrastructure across the state. This collaboration provides comprehensive coaching guidance and financial support to Colorado businesses throughout their journey of implementing electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. Through this partnership, both of our organizations aim to streamline access to resources and financing options for businesses seeking to embrace cleaner transportation alternatives.

The Colorado Energy Office (CEO) has opened the Charge Ahead Colorado standard grant application window from May 13 to June 14, 2024. This grant presents an invaluable opportunity for businesses and nonprofits to secure funding for community-based Level 2 (L2) and DC fast-charging, in order to improve air quality, reduce transportation emissions, and encourage EV adoption across Colorado.

Because the Charge Ahead grant is reimbursement-based, CCEF has created a unique Charge Ahead Loan for successful grant applicants to bridge the gap between equipment purchase and installation, and the receipt of reimbursable grant funds. The Charge Ahead Loan is also available to help finance the full project cost for businesses ready to install EV charging infrastructure.

Drive Clean Colorado, housing four of CEO’s six ReCharge Coaches, stands ready to assist businesses through the intricacies of the Charge Ahead grant application process. These expert coaches offer tailored guidance and support to navigate the application, ensuring that businesses can confidently apply for and maximize the benefits of the grant.
