Electric Cars & Charging Stations

Town of Vail EV Charging Stations 

To accommodate the growing demand for electric vehicle charging capacity, 12 multi-port Level 2 electric vehicle ChargePoint charging stations are available (6 in the Vail Village parking structure, 1 in the Lionshead garage and 5 in the Red Sandstone Parking Garage). These Level 2 Stations are free to use and depending on utilization may deliver 10 to 20 miles of range per hour of charging. In addition, there are 4 single-port Level 3 DC Fast Chargers available in the short-term parking of the Lionshead Parking Structure. These Level 3 charging stations can deliver 60 to 80 miles of range in 20 minutes of charging and have an associated cost to use. The rate structure includes a combined charge rate for energy and time used.

Charge for energy used                      $ 0.20/kWh
Charge timed rate                               $ 0.25/minute

Parking in a charging station while not actively charging an electric vehicle is illegal per Colorado State Statue 43-2-1214. Persons are prohibited from:

  • Parking in the space if the vehicle is not an electric vehicle;
  • Using a dedicated charging station for parking if the electric vehicle is not charging.

The penalty for a violation is a $150 fine.
