The City of Wichita and Sedgwick County are involved with the Electrify Heartland Project.
Ruth Redenbaugh from the Kansas City Regional Office held a meeting Monday morning in the board room at Wichita City Hall with interested citizens. By the year 2015, 7,000 electric vehicles will be on the streets in Missouri and Kansas.
"They have a lot of get up and go." sald Rendenbaugh.
The planning area covers 14 counties in Kansas and Missouri with a population of 2.7 million people.
"They really enjoy the fact that they're saving quite a bit of money each month that they would have been spending on petroleum," said Redenbaugh.
So far, Westar Energy has built seven charging stations in Wichita for electric vehicles.
