Host EV charging stations at your business

LG&E and KU offer business customers the opportunity to host charging stations.

Business customers may host one or more charging stations to be located in a suitable location on their property that is mutually agreed upon by LG&E and KU and the company. It is up to the station host to determine if the hosted stations will be publicly or privately accessible. 

The stations include space for customer branding and have charging plugs that lock in the stand when not in use. The stations also have digital display screens and quick-pay options for a convenient customer experience.
