Kentucky Public Power Utility Seeks Consultant for Electric Vehicle Readiness Plan

Kentucky public power utility Paducah Power System is seeking interested consultant teams to submit proposals for a planning project that will develop an electric vehicle readiness plan for the utility’s service territory.

The plan will be developed through coordinated engagement with EV partners and stakeholders, Paducah Power System said in a recent request for proposals.

The consultant is expected to have expertise in utility data and forecasting tools on EVs including the ability to tailor these products to PPS and create mapped analysis of priorities for future EV infrastructure, particularly to increase equitable access to such infrastructure.

The goal of the project is to make the Paducah community EV ready by developing a plan “that provides a vision for EV readiness, identifies key partnerships and actionable strategies needed to achieve the vision, and facilitates community support for electric vehicles.”

The deadline for responses is February 22, 2023.
