Electric Vehicles (EVs) are vehicles that operate on an electric motor instead of an internal-combustion engine that generates power by burning a mix of fuel and gases. The City of Aspen is committed to reducing greenhouse gases in our community and supports the use of EVs by offering charging stations throughout town. Charging stations are sites where EVs can receive a charge that contributes to the range the vehicle can drive. Charging at sites in Aspen is available to all EV users for free, although parking fees and posted hours do apply.
Use this map to find an EV charging station near you. You can visit the Alternative Fuels Data Center for the US Department of Energy's map of charging stations across the nation.
