Erie is Committed

The Town of Erie is committed to increasing the number of electric vehicles on the road and improving charging infrastructure in the Town. To support this, the Public Works Department and Sustainability Division now offer public electric vehicle charging stations for the community's use. These charging stations are available 24/7 and are part of the ChargePoint network. Erie has a goal to partner with local electricity providers, counties, and neighboring municipalities to create a cohesive EV charging network and install 25 publicly available charging stations by 2025.

Electric Vehicle and charging stationTo access and use the ChargePoint stations, download the ChargePoint app and follow instructions to create an account. 

The cost of charging your electric vehicle is $0.15/kWh and can be covered with a credit card or through the ChargePoint app. All vehicles can be left at the charging station for up to 4 hours & 15 minutes. After this time a $25 charge will be applied to your account with a maximum charge of $35. Spaces are intended to be a shared community asset and this system helps encourage that shared use.

To report a combustion engine vehicle parked at the EV charging station, please call the non-emergency police dispatch line at 303-441-4444.
