EV charging stations are starting to spread around the nation, but so far there's been a concentration of these installations in cities -- especially when it comes to more cutting-edge stations, like the first public quick-charging station installed in Portland. But one Tennessee town is proving EV charging needs to happen in more rural areas too.
The town of Pulaski has just installed an EV charging station powered by a 20-kW parking lot solar array from Outpost Solar, the first of its kind in the Southeast. The station is from EV-Charge America and has two level one plugs and two level two plugs, the type designed to charge the Nissan LEAF and Chevy Volt. It's available for use by anyone with a plug-in vehicle.
Smyrna, TN will become the home to a LEAF production facility soon and as that EV hits the roads, this station will likely see a bit of traffic. Beyond Pulaski, 14 more solar EV charging stations are set to open in Tennessee in the next three years, including locations in Nashville and Chattanooga.
