Roeland Park has the first charging station for electric vehicles within the State of Kansas. It was installed at the Roeland Park City Hall and is available for use by the public.
Installing Charging Stations at Home
If the charging station was connected to an existing power source, the City will need to issue a permit for adding a new circuit. The City would inspect the panel box connections and methods used to connect the charging station. If the wiring goes under ground, the City would check for the proper depth, conduit size, and conduit connections.
In the event that the charging station is installed in an existing garage or structure, it would still require a new isolated circuit and would follow many of the guidelines listed above and require a permit for adding a new circuit.
