Jackson, WY | February 12th — Yellowstone-Teton Clean Cities (YTCC) is launching the ‘Level 2 Charging Program’ for the second year, after a successful pilot initiative in 2023. This program is designed to increase electric vehicle adoption and charging infrastructure throughout Teton County. With a $10,000 grant from Teton Conservation District, YTCC aims to support additional level 2 charging projects.
Last year, this program allocated funding to assist six local entities: Habitat for Humanity, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Rendezvous River Sports, Teton County Weed and Pest, Teton Village Association, and Town Creek Condominiums. Their collective efforts showcase the growing commitment to sustainability among Teton County organizations and businesses.
Teton County Weed and Pest has successfully installed two chargers outside their administration building and has also decided to independently purchase and install two additional chargers, along with an electric vehicle to expand their fleet in 2024.
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort installed one charging station at their Pump House Building and plans to install a second unit this spring in an employee parking area, catering to the growing demand for electric vehicle charging among staff.
Rendezvous River Sports received two charging stations from YTCC, both are operational outside their location on Broadway Avenue. Additionally, they own and operate a Chevy Bolt, an electric vehicle, which reduces Rendevous fleet’s greenhouse gas emissions
Habitat for Humanity is set to install the charging stations this spring at the Parkside at Benson-Brown Station 18 home project in East Jackson. This building project emphasizes energy-efficient design principles, making these charging stations an integral addition.
Teton Village Association is set to install both charging stations this Spring in their main parking area so electric vehicle charging is available for their summer guests and employees, which will encourage staff and visitors both to consider driving electric.
We encourage other local leaders to consider what can be done at their places of work, contributing to the Town of Jackson and Teton County’s shared goal of a more sustainable future. This program reopens on Monday, February 12th, 2024, welcoming applications from any business, organization, or representatives from a multi-unit dwelling within Teton County. Applicants have the option to choose between two support options: applying for funding (up to $1,000), or requesting two pre-purchased level 2 charging units from YTCC for self-installation. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, with funding announcements scheduled for mid-April. Charging stations will be distributed shortly thereafter.
