SEI Opens First Public Electric Vehicle Charging Station in Delta County, Colorado

SEI-Charging-StationOn June 1, 2015, Solar Energy International (SEI) commissioned the first public electric vehicle (EV) charging station in Delta County, Colorado.

“SEI is proud to make our electric vehicle charging station free and open to the public,” stated Kathy Swartz, SEI’s Executive Director.  “The energy powering SEI’s charging station is 100% solar powered through our state-of-the-art solar training facility.”

SEI Charging Station--2“This EV charging station literally puts Delta County on the map today as an accessible destination for clean, reliable transportation. Historically these efforts have focused on the Front Range or much larger communities. With this charging station, we are able to provide this service to locals and visitors alike,” said Pete Mueller, SEI’s AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer and author of the grant.  Electric vehicle charging stations can be located on www.plugshare.com and on the smartphone app,  Alternative Fueling Station Locator, managed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
