Clean transportation-focused company ECOtality says it still has openings for The EV Project.
The EV Project, which is being operated by ECOtality, is what the company calls, the “largest deployment of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure” in the U.S. Only available in Tennessee for now, the Project is a pilot program that will measure how customers who own electric vehicles charge up their cars, where they do so, and other behaviors.
Charging stations are being deployed around several cities in Tennessee, including Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville, and Chattanooga.
To help coax customers into participating in The EV Project, Tennessee is offering Nissan Leaf owners a $2,500 rebate that can be used when they charge up their vehicles. All told, the state is investing $2.5 million for those rebates.
ECOtality did not immediately respond to CNET’s request for comment on how much it will cost to fully charge up the Leaf.
