In 2017, only 0.25 percent of registered vehicles in the state are electric or plug-in hybrid. Despite there being only a handful of electric vehicle owners, legislators want to let utility companies build and operate charging stations and make every other consumer pay for it. It’s unfair to force Coloradans, especially low-income families struggling to keep their houses heated and lights on, to subsidize a few Coloradans who own electric cars.
If customers value electric vehicles, market participants will provide the necessary infrastructure and supplementary services at zero cost to the people who don’t have one.
Tell your lawmakers your utility bills are expensive enough, and you oppose this unfair plan.
