This list is deprecated as the original intent was to point out the large percentage of DCFC units in Colorado that were non-functional. This seems to no longer be an issue.

Pueblo is only available during the service hours, not normal dealership hours. I recommend just avoiding that place all together. The free L2s at the courthouse and the river walk are much more worthy of our support.

Received from Tynans today:
Hello Leaf Owners!

In recent weeks, an issue with Level 3 chargers statewide has been discovered. While these chargers were tested in extreme temperatures, they were not tested for altitude changes, and Colorado being a mile high, has seen problems with the chargers.

That being said, Tynan's quick charger, along with almost all quick chargers across the state of Colorado are currently out of order. The charging company is working to replace these units as fast as possible.

Our level 2 chargers are still in working order, it is just the quick charger that is currently down.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and will send you a follow-up email once the issue has been fixed.

Thank you! And Happy Holidays!

Tynans Nissan Staff
Todd and Ashley at Tynans FoCo and Nigel at Boulder really do a good job of trying to keep us informed about their charger status.

Another one bites the dust...Longmont down for SAE and CHAdeMO. It's not even Another Bad Box (ABB) unit.

Longmont reported by Rob on Plugshare as functional as of 12/17. Great news, that is the best CHAdeMO around IMHO.

I will try to update the list when I am on a computer next, it looks like some new CHAdeMO is coming! Plugshare shows 2 new NRGEVGO units in south Denver. Also a new unit showing at south Colorado Springs at the nissan dealer. Finally one on the west side of Denver at Empire nissan.

Nice to see some new units!

At first I thought south Colorado springs Nissan was a mistake on plugshare but now I see a comment that confirms it! I will try this out sometime soon. Would have been much more useful at wooden Nissan by I25 though.

Wait... Now woodmen Nissan shows dc on plugshare too!? If true I sure hope that means they are going to start being more open to non customers charging there!

Didn't see this one because I usually filter out restricted sites. Wouldn't choose to support a dealer that did this. Hope the South Springs site doesn't. I really need a dcqc down there or I will have to keep driving the wife's gasser every time I'm there.

The south Springs Nissan dealer has allowed me to charge despite not buying from them. However, their parking lot is configured to require you to go through the service bay to get to the chargers, so only during business hours.

It is nice to see several new "coming soon" NRG eVgo L3s shown on the Colorado map. Superior, Highlands Ranch, and Foxfield. All of those would greatly increase the flexible range for the LEAF.
