EV Charging Stations

Electric vehicle on road with mountains in the distance.Electrifying transportation is an exciting trend that Gunnison County Electric Association (GCEA) is proud to be a part of! GCEA now owns and operates 13 public charging stations in Gunnison and Hinsdale counties. Grants from the Charge Ahead Colorado program helped fund most of these projects, along with generous contributions from the Towns of Crested Butte and Lake City as well as Hinsdale County, Lake City DIRT, and The Lake City Chamber of Commerce.

As of January 1, 2021, all but three of the stations charge reasonable fees for 240-volt Level 2 and 480-volt Level 3 or DC fast charging.
