Back in January KCPL announced that they would be installing 1000 EV chargers in and around the Kansas City area. Over the past few weeks I was very pleased to notice that multiple CHAdeMO chargers as well as a number of J1772 chargers began showing up on PlugShare.com. My wife and I drove up yesterday for the Maroon 5 show (don't judge) so I was really excited to have a chance to charge at my first ever Tesla Supercharger in Independence, but was even more pleased to find that had I chosen not to, there was a new CHAdeMO station at the Town Pavilion Parking Garage, just 2 blocks from my hotel and 1 block from the Sprint Center! Finding it was easy with PlugShare. As advised by a comment from someone who'd used it, I entered from Walnut street and the charger was obvious as I paid my $20 "Event Fee" since the concert was going on. The sign said that the usual "Over Night" fee was $15 (would have been $22 at my hotel to valet anyway) and I confirmed with the attendant who called the manager and confirmed that if I paid the $20 "Event Fee" that that would qualify for the "Over Night" fee as well. Good enough... I pulled into the stall which was still marked on the ground and with the signage as "Handicapped". I confirmed that they did not know when the people would come paint it and change signage. Again, I verbally confirmed that I wouldn't get towed or have a boot put on for parking there while I charged. I was pleased to get 49kW when I plugged in with my brand new adapter, but I only needed about 20 miles of range or so to get to a 90% charge level since I'd topped up to about 210 miles at the Independence Supercharger, so that happened very quickly. In hind sight I found out that KCPL had very recently installed some J1772 chargers in parking garages closer to my hotel that I would have rather used, esp. since I ended up having little choice but to leave the car on the charger all night. All of these appear to be ChargePoint chargers, btw. Anyway, the next morning I walked the 2 blocks to restart the charger and top up to a max charge while having breakfast with my wife. Upon trying to leave the garage I handed over the "Event Parking" slip to the same guy that was in the booth the night before only to be informed that to qualify for "overnight" that I had to be out of the garage by 6am...yes, even on a Sunday Morning in an otherwise completely empty garage (literally maybe 2-3 other cars in the entire structure). Since it was 9:15 am I had to pay an additional $15 "daily max" rate on top of the event fee! So, I took around a total of 35 miles of charge from the CHAdeMO, I did need overnight parking as well, but the entire experience cost me $35! I'm not sure how KCPL decided where to place the chargers. I certainly hope they remain free if they're going to be in a garage that is this expensive. I would have hoped they would have placed them in more reasonably priced locales. There are about 10 other new CHAdeMO chargers around the city. At least one is in a spot that is just as well located as the one in the garage I used above, but it doesn't have any markings at all, so it is routinely ICE'd, I suspect those ICEing it have no idea they're even doing so. Seems that KCPL needs to expedite the painting and signage process to accompany the installs, or at least make a nice green "EVs Only" cone to block the spot from those who might otherwise pull in but don't need to charge. Ok, long story, and I'm thrilled to see the rapidly expanding charging infrastructure in a metropolitan area that is important to me. But there are and will be growing pains.
