Colorado Springs EV Club Visiting Walsenburg for EVOverload21

A chance to see how many cars can be charged simultaneously in Walsenburg, CO

After the recent launch of four new pub­licly acces­si­ble elec­tric vehi­cle charge ports at the EV Trail charg­ing sta­tion at George’s Dri­ve Inn, the Col­orado Springs EV Club has sched­uled a club dri­ve to the sta­tion on Sat­ur­day, Novem­ber 13, 2021. The event is being dubbed EVOverload21 because one goal is to demon­strate that over­load­ing the avail­able charge ports will not neg­a­tive­ly impact any oth­er San Isabel Elec­tric Asso­ci­a­tion cus­tomers. There are six total pub­lic charge ports in Walsen­burg, includ­ing two at the South Cen­tral Coun­cil of Gov­ern­ments office. All avail­able ports will be in use start­ing at around 11:30 am. “It’s like­ly that the pop­u­la­tion of elec­tric vehi­cles in Walsen­burg will dou­ble or triple for a cou­ple hours,” said Cur­tis Claar, founder of EV Trail. “We need­ed to test the new charg­ers for max­i­mum load and with the CSEVC par­tic­i­pat­ing, local res­i­dents will have a chance to see mul­ti­ple elec­tric vehi­cles and meet with their own­ers.” The new charg­ing sta­tion at George’s Dri­ve Inn fea­tures a CHAde­MO plug, a CCS plug, and two J1772 plugs, allow­ing all elec­tric cars sold in the US to be charged. EV Trail is offer­ing free charg­ing all day on Sat­ur­day, Novem­ber 13.


About the Col­orado Springs EV Club: The Col­orado Springs EV Club (CSEVC) is a group based in Col­orado Springs whose mem­bers pro­mote the own­er­ship and use of elec­tric vehi­cles. Club mem­bers dri­ve all kinds of elec­tric vehi­cles, includ­ing vehi­cles man­u­fac­tured by Tes­la, BMW, Mini, Nis­san, Chevro­let, Ford, Audi, Jaguar and oth­ers; elec­tric bikes and more. The club is active through­out the region and its mem­bers love to intro­duce peo­ple to elec­tric vehi­cles.

About EV Trail: Oth­er Elec­tric Vehi­cle Sup­ply Equip­ment (EVSE) com­pa­nies have been focused on the local and cor­ri­dor com­mutes as crit­i­cal steps to broad adop­tion of EV usage. EV Trail is focused on long-dis­tance EV trav­el, large­ly in under­pop­u­lat­ed remote areas, specif­i­cal­ly between Albu­querque and Mount Rush­more. We believe this is a crit­i­cal com­po­nent of EV adop­tion. Much like the Ore­gon Trail and oth­er trails from over 100 years ago that became a huge part of devel­op­ing our coun­try, EV Trail is poised to become an equal­ly large part of Amer­i­ca.
