KCP&L to install over 1,000 charging stations in Greater Kansas City region

The network – said to be the largest electric vehicle charging station installation by an electric utility in the United States – will be up and running by summer 2015 and will be compatible with any electric vehicle.

It will also offer free charging for the first two years through partnerships with companies at host locations and with Nissan Motor Company.

The stations are manufactured by ChargePoint and will be part of the ChargePoint network of more than 20,000 charging spots in North America. 

‘The Kansas City region is quickly building a reputation as an innovative, sustainable place to live and work,’ said Terry Bassham, president and CEO of Great Plains Energy and KCP&L. ‘We’re excited to continue being a leader in support of this growth by providing our customers and visitors to this region with an environmentally-friendly alternative to gasoline-powered vehicles. Thanks to our Clean Charge Network, everyone in our service territory will be able to charge up and hit the road.’
