Electric Vehicles (EVs)
Thanks to financial support from the BVSD Bond Program, coupled with grants from the Regional Air Quality Council, 45 schools and the Education Center now have charging stations. These charging stations contribute to the local EV infrastructure to support the use of EVs by district employees and the public.
Charging is available to staff for $0.11/kWh on schooldays from 8 AM to 5 PM. All other times, the rate is $0.25/kWh. The public is welcome to use the charging stations before and after school hours and on weekends and holidays.
With financial assistance of the Regional Air Quality Council, the Colorado Energy Office, and the City of Boulder, BVSD purchased two electric vehicles (EVs) in 2014 for qualified Education Center staff to use for work-related trips. Employees are seeing first-hand the practical benefits of EVs, and BVSD is getting environmental and financial benefits. By substituting trips in private gasoline-powered autos with clean running BVSD EVs, both tailpipe pollution and costs related to employees’ mileage reimbursement are being cut. Furthermore, employees are encouraged to bike and bus to the Education Center knowing that an EV is available for work trips during the day.
