DNR to Provide Electric Car Charging Stations in the Future at State Parks

People who drive electric vehicles in Missouri will soon have more locations to power up.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources (DNR) plans to begin installing electric vehicle charging stations in some state parks. The state budget signed by Governor Mike Parson includes one million dollars to add charging stations in the state park system.

State parks spokeswoman Miranda Frederick tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “the plans for the deployment of the charging stations are still in the initial stages of development so no specific details are available at this time.” The DNR is also using funding from the Volkswagen settlement case to build a system of electric charging stations in nine communities around the state.
