Such stations no longer will be regulated by the Public Utilities Commission after Aug. 8, under terms of the bill signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper late last week.
The new law is an important step to help move the state’s alternative-transportation industry forward, said Christine Shapard, executive director of the Colorado Cleantech Industry Association.
“Above all else, it’s giving Coloradans, companies and retailers a choice in where and how they fuel their alternative-fuel vehicles,” Shapard said in a press statement.
Now that the law has been signed, trade group members plan to meet with companies across the state to discuss how to foster more alternative-fuel vehicle use in Colorado, said Chris Votoupal, deputy director of the trade group.
