Business Monday Briefs: EV sale extended; Aspen architect recognized; new dentist in Carbondale

Electric vehicle sales event extended

An electric-vehicle sales promotion organized by local energy-efficiency nonprofits has been extended through July 31 to make up for lost time during the coronavirus shutdown.

The Western Slope Electric Vehicle Sales Event — a “group buy” program offering discounts of as much as $11,000 on EVs at Glenwood Springs and Grand Junction auto dealerships — was supposed to have ended June 15.

Participating dealers are Mountain Chevrolet, Audi Glenwood Springs and Phil Long Honda in Glenwood Springs, and Ed Bozarth Chevrolet-Buick and Red Rock Nissan in Grand Junction. In addition, SunRabbit Clean Transport in Grand Junction is offering deals on pre-owned EVs.

This is the fourth annual sales event, and the first to include Grand Junction dealers. It’s organized by Carbondale-based Clean Energy Economy for the Region, Garfield Clean Energy, the Aspen-based Community Office for Resource Efficiency and Walking Mountains Sustainability in Avon.

More information about EV models, discounts and tax credits, along with a recorded “Electric Road Show” webinar, can be found at
