(Frankfort, Ky.) – Governor Andy Beshear recently announced a round of federal funding to build 18 new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.

Eight developers were selected to build the public charging stations along Kentucky’s interstates and parkways.

In northern Kentucky, a new charging station will be built in Crestview Hills at the Crestview Hills Town Center.

The award went to Tesla for $384,782.

This will be the fourth charging station located in northern Kentucky after locations in Florence, Walton, and Sparta were selected during earlier rounds of funding.

Combined with the first two rounds of awards announced late last year, Kentucky has now approved 42 charging stations from 11 developers for a total of $27.2 million in federal formula funds.

“Kentucky is leading the way as we build out a reliable and convenient electric vehicle charging network for the drivers who live here and for those who come to visit our great state,” said Gov. Beshear. “With these new awardees, our EV Charging Program will add a total of 42 new fast charging stations along Kentucky’s interstates and parkways.”

Each station must have at least four charging ports of 150 kilowatts each, be accessible to the public 24 hours a day/seven days a week and work with most EV models. Amenities such as restrooms and locations to purchase food and beverages are included at station locations.
