KCP&L, an investor-owned utility headquartered in Kansas City, Mo., is using Coulomb Technologies' ChargePoint Network to access electric-vehicle (EV) charging-station data collected for a three-year pilot program in and around Kansas City.
The program consists of eight program-partner EV charging sites, including a community college, hospital, manufacturing plant, corporate office, and municipal and retail locations. The charging network is used to gather data from EV drivers, including usage, number of charging events, number of kilowatt hours used and how it translates to greenhouse gas savings.
KCP&L serves more than 800,000 customers in 47 northwestern Missouri and eastern Kansas counties. The company selected Coulomb distributor Carbon Day Automotive and its local reseller, LilyPad EV, to install the 10 EV charging stations throughout the metropolitan area.
