DES MOINES, Iowa — Kum & Go LC has partnered with the Colorado Energy Office to introduce DC fast-charging stations to another store in the state, at a new store opening in Wellington, Colo.

“Kum & Go has been a great early partner in our EV Corridors charging infrastructure efforts,” said Matt Mines, program manager for the Colorado Energy Office. “These new charging locations will help Coloradans drive anywhere in the state in an EV.”

The Colorado Energy Office awarded ChargePoint with the contract to build out the corridors project at 34 locations. Since this agreement, Kum & Go and ChargePoint have worked together on nine completed sites in the United States with five more sites slated to be completed by the end of 2021. 

“Kum & Go is committed to leading with sustainable options designed to meet the dynamic needs of our customers. Our network of DC fast-chargers and the support of Colorado Energy Office help advance this important work,” said Ken Kleemeier vice president of fuels for Kum & Go.

Kum & Go continues to put a focus on sustainability. In 2010, Kum & Go became certified under the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Volume Program.

“Public-private partnerships like ours with ChargePoint and Kum & Go are critical to increasing charging options for EV drivers across the state,” said Will Toor, executive director of Colorado Energy Office.

Based in Des Moines, Iowa, Kum & Go is a family-owned convenience store chain with a presence across the Midwest and West, with more than 400 stores in 11 states.
