Lenexa installs new electric vehicle chargers

 Electric vehicle owners can now conveniently charge their cars while working out, attending a meeting or enjoying a meal on the Lenexa civic campus.

The City of Lenexa recently installed four Level 2 electric vehicle chargers in the Lenexa civic campus parking garage. They’re located just south of the garage’s Winchester Street entrance.

To use the chargers, download the EV Connect app and follow the instructions to charge your vehicle. Rates are set at 20 cents a kilowatt hour.

The four parking spots equipped with chargers are reserved for charging electric vehicles only. Cars left plugged in for excessive periods will be charged an idling fee.

City staff are also working to install two Level 2 chargers in Old Town Lenexa. These chargers in the northeast corner of the parking lot along Santa Fe Trail Drive are expected to be operational within the next couple of months.

After these charging station pilot projects successfully launch, Lenexa may look to implement chargers at other public sites in the future. The six pilot project chargers are eligible for a $15,000 rebate from Evergy’s Electric Vehicle Charging Rebate program.

Lenexa’s municipal property and facilities – including the civic campus – are powered by clean, renewable energy due to the City of Lenexa’s participation in Evergy’s Renewables Direct Program.
