Arvest in Kansas City Helps with KCP&L Clean Charge Network

Category: Arvest Community News

Arvest is joining with KCP&L on the KCP&L Clean Charge Network.* Two branch locations in Kansas will each have two stations with the capacity to charge four cars at one time. 

KCP&L is designing and installing a network of more than 1,100 EV charging stations (2,200 plus charging ports). The vast majority will be Level 2 charging stations with some Level 3 (DC fast charge) stations. They are focusing on publicly accessible, high population density/long dwell time areas, workplaces and geographic dispersion.

Electric vehicle (EV) sales mirror the adoption of hybrid vehicles with 17 models currently available and 18 more expected within 18 months. Annual EV growth is better than 100 percent (ranges from 103-525 percent). There are currently 1,600 EV registered in the state of Missouri and 692 in Kansas. 

KCP&L wants to support affordable access to EVs for more people, lowering the costs of ownership and maintenance, and resulting in cleaner air and a cleaner environment.

Arvest welcomes the stations at 7401 W. 135th St. in Overland Park, Kan., and 6300 Nall Ave. in Mission, Kan., and looks forward to being part of the KCP&L Clean Charge Network.
