AFPM helps protect ratepayers from EV surcharges

(WASHINGTON, DC) As part of a settlement to resolve a challenge brought about by multiple parties, including the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM), Kansas City Power & Light Company (KCP&L) has agreed to withdraw its proposal to charge its customer base for the costs of electric vehicle charging stations that solely benefit electric vehicle (EV) owners and operators. Under the terms of the settlement, KCP&L has agreed to instead increase charging rates only for users of its electric vehicle charging stations.

“This agreement is an important step to ensure that the cost of charging EVs are paid by EV owners and are not subsidized by families and businesses throughout the state in the form of higher electricity rates,” said AFPM President and CEO Chet Thompson. “This agreement protects the three million citizens of Kansas from footing the bill for charging the 2,000 electric vehicles in the state.”
