Centerra Announces New EV Charging Stations

Finding a place to charge an electric car in northern Colorado is about to get easier. Centerra of Loveland announced Wednesday a network of electric vehicle charging stations will be installed at the master planned community north of Hwy 34. 

Jay Hardy, the general manager of Centerra, says the intent of the initiative is to spur the adoption of electric vehicles, and showcase the number of charging stations becoming available across Northern Colorado.

“There are locations that the city of Loveland has put in, the city of Fort Collins has put in, we will have some put in,” Hardy said. “There are efforts to do things in Windsor and Greeley so that when a consumer is actually looking to buy an electric vehicle, they’re not concerned about going from point A to point B.”

Ben Holland with Drive Electric Northern Colorado says the expanded network shows growing partnerships surrounding electric vehicle development.

“This unprecedented partnership demonstrates how Northern Colorado businesses are uniting to help our community become a model for EV deployment.” Holland said.

The charging stations will be located at the Shops at Centerra, the Rangeview office park, as well as a location east of I-25 that’s still to be determined. They should be online by early 2014.
