Two Milestones Reached for KOP Rail
KOP Rail moves forward with a new study and the approval of a design firm

KOP Rail has reached two milestones within the month. The SEPTA Board has approved a contract to advance further engineering of the KOP Rail extension of the Norristown High Speed Line (NHSL) into King of Prussia. The selected consultant team is led by HNTB, an infrastructure solutions firm serving public and private owners and contractors.

Additionally, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission released a new study in January that explores the local land use and transportation implications of the proposed extension. The report, Station Area Planning of the Norristown High Speed Line Extension to King of Prussia, supports KOP Rail by exploring concepts related to pedestrian and bicycle access to the five proposed  stations, as well as transit supportive land use and development considerations for the area.

Recharge in KOP
Electric vehicle charging stations are becoming more and more widespread throughout King of Prussia

Electric vehicles (EV) are becoming common on the roads and KOP businesses have noticed.  Throughout KOP, property owners are installing electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) charging stations to make it easier to recharge at businesses and multifamily developments. Currently 10 charging stations are located in KOP for public use with more on the way.  

The US Department of Energy (USDE) and Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection are promoting the switch to EVs to improve the nation's environmental and energy security. If a complete switch to EVs were made, greenhouse gas emissions would lower by more than 60% and demand for oil imports would drop more than 80%.

One program highlighted under Pennsylvania's Drive PA Forward  campaign is the EVSE Rebate. Since September 2018, businesses and multifamily developments can apply for rebates up to $5,000 for installing EVSE stations for public or non-public use.  Approximately $7.7M has been allocated to this 5-year program that will be sure to incentivize commercial properties to make it easier for EVs to operate across the Keystone state. 

To learn more about EVs, charging station locations or installing EVSEs visit the USDE's Alternative Fuels Data Center website.
