New Public Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

LG&E and KU received approval to place 10 charging stations in each service territory.

The Kentucky Public Service Commission issued an order April 11, 2016 approving a plan intended to give drivers of electric vehicles access to more places to recharge vehicles’ batteries.  The commission approved a proposal by Louisville Gas & Electric Co. (LG&E) and sister company Kentucky Utilities to establish company-operated, public electric vehicle charging stations and to permit non-residential customers to host charging stations.

KU and LG&E are authorized to install as many as 20 utility-operated charging stations. There is no limit on the number of stations that could be installed on customer properties. Read the full article from the Courier-Journal here.
