First Electric Vehicle Charging Station Unveiled Wednesday

Posted By on Tue, Jul 5, 2011 at 2:48 PM


Drivers of electric cars in Memphis can finally charge their vehicles at a public station. The Peabody Hotel is home to Memphis' first charging station, which will be unveiled on Wednesday afternoon. The charging equipment is compatible with the all-electric Nissan LEAF.

The station was made available through San Francisco-based ECOtality's EV Project, which is overseeing the development of around 14,000 charging stations in 18 major cities. Memphis is set to receive more than 60 stations located in public areas throughout the city.

For more on the EV Project and proposed locations for Memphis charging stations, read Lindsay Jones' Memphis Flyer story.
