Kit Carson Electric Cooperative (KCEC} in partnership with the Town of Taos, UNM-Taos, Renewable Taos, Taos County and KTAO Solar Center, installed ten electric vehicle (EVI charging stations in the Taos area.

Each venue has a different combination of universal and Tesla chargers. EV drivers will have the convenience of charging their EV free of charge without worry of their battery running low. KCEC wants to promote the highlights and benefits of northern NM and encourage the public to visit these unique places.

KCEC understands the financial constraints of municipalities businesses and entities thus the charging stations are free to the public.

CEO Luis A. Reyes Jr. “We want to encourage local businesses and communities that we serve to join us the Energy Revolution”.

KCEC wants to thank all of the entities that helped facilitate and advocate foe the placement of the EV charging stations.

FedEx Express Announcement

The FedEx Express driver has let us know that the supervisor in this area will no longer allow the FedEx driver to pickup your express packages at the Chamber of Commerce. The new driver informed us that his boss said it is not cost efficient to stop by our office every day to check on the pick-up because we do not have an envelope going out everyday.

We at the Chamber are very sorry this is happening again. We have offered this service to the residents of Angel Fire for many years, but without the cooperation of FedEx Express, there is nothing we can do.

Please note this is only FedEx Express. FedEx Ground and UPS Ground are still picking up at the Chamber on a daily basis. Please feel free to drop them off in our foyer.
