The City of Manhattan and Westar Energy have entered into an agreement for Westar to install and operate two, level two Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) stations to accommodate electric vehicles. Each charging station can accommodate two vehicles, serving four vehicles total. The Charging Stations will be operated and maintained by Westar. Users will pay a kilowatt-hour charge including applicable riders, surcharges, taxes and fees assessed by Westar Energy, Inc.
The City expects the charging station to be installed by Westar and fully operational near the beginning of 2019.
