Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Proposed for Memphis Area



First Memphis managed to elbow its way into ECOtality North America's six-state electric vehicle project and now it's on the verge of getting 69 charging stations.

After initially favoring Knoxville, Chattanooga, and Nashville for the demonstration project that seeks to accelerate use of electric cars, Memphis signed on to the initiative in February. The project is funded by a $99.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy and also includes Arizona, California, Oregon, Texas, and Washington.

Today, members of the Bartlett, Collierville, Germantown, and Memphis planning departments briefed their mayors about where they think the charging stations should be.
