Ameren plans for charging corridor in Missouri

Utility company Ameren Missouri is planning to introduce public charging stations for EVs along Interstate 70 in Missouri, US.

EV Charging

The project, estimated to cost around $600,000, would build public charging islands along I-70.

The project, estimated to cost around $600,000, would build public charging islands along I-70 – the most heavily travelled interstate in Missouri – that would accommodate all electric vehicle makes and models.

Ameren Missouri said it’s now working to identify locations for six of these charging islands, each featuring combinations of fast and standard charging stations for public use.

Ameren Missouri’s Mark Nealon, who is leading the pilot charging corridor project, said: “Missouri’s charging infrastructure gap is two-fold: regional communities are not connected together along driving corridors with charging stations, and those that are there aren’t fast enough to meet the needs of the long-distance driver. Ameren Missouri’s proposal addresses both gaps.”

“Ameren Missouri acknowledges the many societal benefits associated with electric vehicles,” added Michael Moehn, president of Ameren Missouri. “They positively impact the environment, help create jobs, offer fuel and maintenance savings for EV owners, and help reduce our region’s carbon footprint.”
