FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky officials have approved a proposal to increase the number of public charging stations for electric vehicles.

A statement from the Public Service Commission says the panel agreed on Monday to allow a proposal by Louisville Gas & Electric Co. and Kentucky Utilities to add up to 20 new charging stations.

The proposal includes the possibility of the utility companies operating charging stations in public places such as parking garages and of allowing non-residential customers — such as a shopping mall — to host charging stations.

The utilities said in their application that there are about 30 public charging stations in Kentucky.

The PSC said in its order that there is a need for more stations to serve the growing number of electric car owners.
