A DCFC complex is under construction in Montrose CO, three blocks from the intersection of US 50
(Grand Junction, Monarch Pass, Salida, Pueblo/Colorado Springs) and US 550
(Ouray, Red Mountain Pass, Silverton, Durango, Farmington, Albuquerque). The site is located at N 1st Street and Uncompahgre Avenue and will have eight Tesla Superchargers and two Chargepoint DCFC stalls; it is being built with the enthusiastic support of the City of Montrose and DMEA, the local electric co-op.
The Chargepoint equipment has just been installed:
Each of the two Chargepoint towers has both CCS and Chademo cords.
This is another fast charging node in a good location for road trips. Montrose is also the gateway city for Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park
Meant to reply to this when it was posted, but got sidetracked. This site is part of the Colorado Electric Vehicle Fast Charging Corridors: https://energyoffice.colorado.gov/zero- ... -corridors
which totals 34 sites, and there should be a dedicated topic for it. CP won the award for all of them. DGP, would you mind starting one and having a mod move or else you copy your post there? As you're one of our Coloradans who's most likely to make use of these, you've got the most incentive to monitor their progress.
