KCP&L Announces 1,000 Electric Car Charging Stations

Jan 26, 2015

Kansas City, Missouri is quickly becoming a destination for innovative technology trends and announcements.

The largest installation of electric car charging stations by a utility company in America was just announced by Kansas City Power & Light Company (KCP&L).

KCP&L announced in a press release that they will install upwards of 1,000 charging stations that can support 10,000+ electric vehicles.

The charging stations are produced by ChargePoint and the company has already built more than 20,000 charging stations across America. The utility company partnered with Nissan Motor Company and ChargePoint to ensure free charging capabilities for consumers for up to two years.

The company also announced that the Clean Charge Network (the name of the charging stations) will keep electricity costs down as more and more residents of Missouri adopt electric vehicles.

The charging stations will be placed in hubs centrally located to ensure that electric car drivers can access electricity for their vehicles near their homes and near their jobs. The charging stations are quite fast. The company has announced that many electric cars can be charged from zero to 80 percent in 30 minutes.

This is announcement regarding charging stations is part of a broader trend that includes Google Fiber service in Kansas City. Additionally, the boutique electric car dealership Tesla is attempting to penetrate the Missouri car market. Recently, Missouri auto dealers banded together to prevent residents from the state from purchasing electric vehicles produced by Tesla Motors.

As more and more electric vehicles become available to consumers, the need for charging stations strategically placed throughout the state will become essential.

Peterson & Associates, personal injury attorneys in Missouri, welcome this announcement because the adoption of electric vehicles will greatly reduce the emissions produced by vehicles.
