After being suspended for months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Gunnison County Electric Association’s robust electric vehicle test drive program is up and running again. Exclusively for consumer-members of the co-op, GCEA members can take the co-op’s Chevy Bolt for a week-long test drive. Or they can request a guided test drive around the Gunnison, Crested Butte and Blue Mesa areas in the co-op’s Tesla Model 3. The guided test drive shows members all the features of the vehicle, which are all controlled on the main screen on the vehicle’s dashboard.
Mountain Parks Electric is also the proud new owner of a Tesla Model 3. The Granby-based co-op is still finalizing how and under what conditions it will let consumer-members drive this new addition to its fleet. Under MPE’s Electrify Everything program, the co-op is offering financial assistance and on-bill financing for commercial EV charging stations. EV home charging rebates and wiring rebates are also available for MPE consumer-members.
