Authorizing the City Manager to partner with the Kansas City Regional Clean Cities Coalition Metropolitan Energy Center, the Kansas City Power and Light Company, and other stakeholders in submitting a grant application to the Department of Energy which would fund the development of a feasibility analysis for pairing Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) charging infrastructure with street light infrastructure in the public right-of-way.

 

WHEREAS, the City in collaboration with Kansas City Regional Clean Cities Coalition, Metropolitan Energy Center, the Kansas City Power and Light Company and other stakeholders, desires to fund a feasibility analysis for pairing Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) charging infrastructure with street light infrastructure in the public right-of-way; and

 

WHEREAS, the City and its partners may receive funding for the feasibility from a grant offered by the Department of Energy; and

 

WHEREAS, the grant requires a minimum $2,000,000.00 proposal, of which $1,000,000.00 is derived from grant funding, with matching funds of $1,000,000.00 from in-kind services or monetary funding; and

 

WHEREAS, the purpose of this grant commitment is to determine the feasibility of using streetlight infrastructure to support Electric Vehicle charging; and

 

WHEREAS, the analysis will provide useful information related to costs and other challenges associated with providing streetlight charging and make recommendations to address those challenges; and

 

WHEREAS, the analysis will factor in the need for equity and anticipate issues specific to streetlight charging access in lower income neighborhoods; and

 

WHEREAS, the analysis will be supplemented by decision support tools, in the form of predictive modeling, to analyze diffusion rates and optimal charging locations; and

 

WHEREAS, if awarded the grant, the results of the study will be reported back to Council before January 1, 2020; and

 

WHEREAS, Council, in Resolution No. 170484 adopted on July 20, 2017, asserted that the City “continues to support the principles of the Paris Climate Agreement” and Resolution No. 170586 adopted on August 17, 2017, asserted that the City “is making progress to ensure that buildings are more energy efficient, wind and solar are increasingly a greater part of the City’s electricity mix, and electric vehicles are being used in significantly greater numbers”; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That the City Manager is authorized to partner with the Kansas City Regional Clean Cities Coalition, Metropolitan Energy Center, Kansas City Power and Light Company, and other key stakeholders to submit a grant application which would fund a feasibility analysis for pairing Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) charging infrastructure with street light infrastructure in the public right-of-way.
