Rivian to set up EV charging stations at all Colorado State Parks

Colorado Parks and Wildlife announced a partnership with Rivian to bring EV charging infrastructures to all state parks.

As part of their mission to get EV drivers to travel to remote locations in their electric vehicles, Rivian will spend about $2 million to install two of their 11.5 kW Level 2 chargers in at least fifty locations within the park system.

Rivian will cover the maintenance of the charging station for five years, with options for the State to renew the contract for up to 25 years.

These chargers are unlikely to be part of Rivian’s previously announced Rivian Adventure Network of chargers. Those plans called for the installation of DC fast chargers in remote locations.

This partnership supports Colorado’s commitment to bring 1 million EVs on the road by 2030. Currently, EV sales in the state are outpacing charging station installs, and this partnership will help lessen the gap.

It has not been announced the exact location nor when the chargers will go online. Construction is due to start in the next few months.
