Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations

To continue to build out the city’s EV charging infrastructure, starting November 1, there will be a low "eGallon" price to use the library charging station. Charging will now reflect the real-time price of electricity and will be lower than the cost of gasoline.  Twenty five percent of the energy provided at the station from the utility is powered by renewable sources.

To use the station, you’ll need a ChargePoint account. If you don’t have one, download the ChargePoint app from the App Store or Google Play and sign up in the app, or create an account at ChargePoint.com.

EVs provide cleaner and more affordable transportation options for residents and visitors using city services. EV charging stations are another step toward electrification of vehicles that will help us meet city-wide sustainability goals.

In November of 2016, the City of Lafayette added a second electric vehicle charger to the Bob L. Burger Recreation Center due to popular demand. A large portion of the project was paid by a Charge Ahead Colorado Grant in conjunction with a grant from the Boulder Regional Air Quality Commission and the remaining cost was funded by the Lafayette Energy Sustainability Advisory Committee (LESAC).

This new ChargePoint electric vehicle charger is a pay-for-use charging system similar to what EV drivers will find throughout the county. Boulder County has seen an increase of over 200 new electric vehicles from 2015-2016.

This dual-port charger adds to the existing City Electric Vehicle portfolio which includes chargers at City Hall, the Lafayette Library and the Recreation Center. The centralized locations allow local EV drivers to charge-up and encourages regional drivers to visit Lafayette knowing they have access to a charging station for the drive home. 
 
There is a two-hour maximum for EV charging per use. Charging stations are intended to be used while shopping and using City services.
