Thank you for being a vital part of the KCP&L Clean Charge Network success story. Since the network debuted, KCP&L has worked to ensure charging on all Clean Charge Network stations was free to users — a benefit that helped kick-start EV growth in the region. After three years of free charging, the Clean Charge Network will now move to a host site or EV driver paid model on Jan. 1, 2018.
So, what will this change mean to you?
In many places, more FREE charging! We’re excited to announce that at many Clean Charge Network locations like Price Chopper, Folly Theater and Holiday Inn KCI, free charging will continue thanks to a partnership with the host sites. The ChargePoint app and map will be updated with this information and a list of free stations will be available at cleanchargenetwork.com/freecharge.
So, what about the other stations?
For locations that elected the driver paid model, the cost of charging will be paid by the driver on a per kilowatt hour rate. To use these stations, you’ll need to add a form of payment to your ChargePoint account if you haven’t done so already. Simply login to the ChargePoint app or website, go to “My Account” and add a credit card or PayPal account under “Financial Information.”
What’s the cost on these stations?
- The Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) approved KCP&L’s request for a EV Charging Station rate. So, in Kansas, the rate will be $0.1388 per kilowatt hour for level 2 chargers and $0.148 for level 3 chargers, plus any city taxes and fees.
- The Missouri Public Service Commission (MPSC) denied KCP&L’s request for a EV Charging Station rate. So, in Missouri, the rate will be $0.20 per kilowatt hour for level 2 chargers and $0.25 for level 3 chargers, plus any city taxes and fees.
Our region is a more innovative and sustainable place to live, work and play because of you. We firmly believe we have the best group of EV drivers in the nation and we’re thankful for your ongoing support.
