Continuing its commitment to renewable energy, Kansas State University, in partnership with Evergy, has installed an electric vehicle charging station on the Manhattan campus.

The charging station is located in the D-1 parking lot located off Denison Avenue next to KSU’s Memorial Stadium.

The new charging station offers more than 100 miles of electric range within a few hours of charging.

In addition, the electricity used at the station is offset with renewable energy credits from Evergy.

Use of the electric vehicle charging station requires a K-State parking permit, Monday through Friday from 7 am to 5 pm.

After receiving several requests from many K-Staters who are driving electric vehicles, Kansas State officials reached out to Evergy.

The installation and maintenance of the charging station is provided by Evergy at no cost to the university.

This new station is part of Evergy’s ever-growing network of 2,200 charging stations, one of the largest in the U.S.
