Love's Travel Stops was recently awarded $4.8 million in federal funding to build electric vehicle charging stations at eight of its locations in two states.
The travel stop and Trillium Energy Solutions, a member of the Love's Family of Companies, which designs, builds and maintains clean fueling stations, were selected as part of the Federal Highway Administration's National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program to build an EV charging infrastructure network in Pennsylvania and Colorado.
Love's and Trillium were awarded funds by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to install EV chargers at four existing locations in Slippery Rock, Miffinville, Brookville and Jonestown, Pennsylvania for a combined total of $2.6 million in funding.
The Colorado Energy Office and Colorado Department of Transportation are investing $2.2 million in state and NEVI funding towards Love's EV charging projects at existing stations in Buena Vista, Eads, Parachute, and Hudson, Colorado.
“Truck stops and travel stops are well-positioned to play a key role in building out electric vehicle charging in Pennsylvania and Colorado, not only because of the existing infrastructure footprint, but also because of the amenities and services provided at these locations,” said Ryan Erickson, VP of Trillium Energy Solutions.
