TABERNASH — Known for its eco-friendly commitment to sustainably focused vacation experiences, Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa is expanding its low carbon footprint with the addition of two Tesla and one universal electric car charging stations.

The new Tesla chargers, which Tesla provided to Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa, take approximately four hours to fully charge a car and are available free-of-charge to overnight guests and to day guests on space-available basis. A full charged Tesla gets an average of 300 miles on a full charge.

The Universal Charger, which is being provided by the State of Colorado, is expected to be available later in June and will be able to accommodate electric vehicles made by Chevrolet, Honda and more. The Universal Charger takes approximately four to eight hours to fully charge a car and, like the Tesla Charger, will be free to overnight guests and to day guests on a charger-available basis.

“The addition of the car charging stations further extends Devil’s Thumb Ranch’s commitment to being as fully sustainable as possible and encouraging guests to consider alternate energy source options,” said Dave Houston, director of facilities for Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa. “While still a small segment of car owners, we want to remain as accessible to the traveling public as possible and that includes offering alternate energy resources for them to use,” Houston added.
