Broomfield is the most eastern destination in a planned 1,500-mile route of electric vehicle charging stations to be installed by Volvo at Starbucks stores in the western United States.

Up to 60 DC fast chargers will be built on the picturesque route from Seattle to Denver, along I-90, I-84 and I-70, according to a Starbucks news release.

The very first station, powered by ChargePoint, was installed at a Starbucks in Provo, Utah. This pilot plan, announced in March, is part Starbucks expansion of renewable energy and decarbonization projects in the U.S.,the news release states.

The Colorado communities on the Starbucks route are Grand Junction, Glenwood Springs, Silverthorne, Idaho Springs and Broomfield.

The scenic route passes near six national forests and unlocks to zero tailpipe-emission EV drivers in some of the country’s most iconic spots, according to a Volvo news release. By the end of the year, there will be chargers at Starbucks stores roughly every 100 miles along the route, well within the range of nearly every EV, providing much-needed infrastructure for current EV drivers and those considering an electric vehicle, Volvo states.

While their cars are recharging outside, customers can relax comfortably inside with their favorite Starbucks beverage, Volvo states.

“Partnerships like this are hugely important as we continue to move towards a more sustainable, electrified future,” said Anders Gustafsson, SVP Americas Region and President and CEO, Volvo Car USA.

“Together with Starbucks and ChargePoint, we are creating an EV charging network that can fit seamlessly into everyday life,” Gustaffson said in the news release. “It's a great compliment to Volvo Cars’ mission to give people the freedom to move in safe, sustainable and personal ways, and we look forward to the many ways we can make a positive impact together.”
