Introducing E-470 Charging Spots:
On June 8, we celebrated the unveiling of a new green energy initiative. E-470 now offers two Chargepoint "DC Fast Charge" electric vehicle (EV) charging units free of cost to the public! EV drivers with a DC fast charge port can now "juice up" on their drive to DIA.
These fast charging units are part of E-470's Wired Workplace recognition, a program with Charge Ahead Colorado that honors businesses who strive to improve clean air and encourage the use of electric vehicles. At E-470 we're excited to demonstrate our commitment to sustainability and provide green options to our customers, employees, and our community.

About E-470's Electric Vehicle Charging Units
These fast charging stations offer two types of plug-ins: CHAdeMO and SAE combo cords. Most fast chargers deliver an 80% charge in approximately 30 minutes.
The EV charging units are located at the E-470 headquarters building at 22470 E. 6th Parkway in Aurora, Colorado, directly in front of the ExpressToll Service Center walk-up entrance in the southwest corner of the parking lot. The units are part of the ChargePoint network, which gives customers access to charging station details in mobile apps, online and in navigation systems.

Electric Vehicle Wired Workplace
These EV charging units represent some of the sustainable practices E-470 pursued in order to become designated as a Wired Workplace by Charge Ahead Colorado, a program formed by the Regional Air Quality Council (RAQC) and the Colorado Energy Office (CEO) to improve air quality and promote the use of electric vehicles. Charge Ahead Colorado partially funded these two charging units with a $16,000 grant. E-470 provided an additional $65,000.
As a recognized Wired Workplace with Charge Ahead Colorado, E-470 is proud to accommodate EV drivers and exemplify leadership in sustainability and innovation.
