USA: Knoxville nears completion of electric vehicle chargers

The City of Knoxville is charging ahead in the push to go green. Installation of the city’s nine electric vehicle charging stations is expected to wrap up before the end of August.

“The main benefit to these electric vehicle charging stations is that they reduce tailpipe emissions, helping to improve the ozone at the ground level, improving air quality and health in our region,” said Jake Tisinger, the city’s Sustainability Coordinator.

Six of the city’s seven electric vehicle charging stations fueled by traditional power sources are online. Work on the final unit, at West Hills Park, should be done by week’s end, Tisinger said.

The other locations include Victor Ashe Park, Ijams Nature Center, Caswell Park, Sequoyah Park, the Jackson Avenue parking lot and State Street garage.

Two additional locations will use solar panels. Four stations at the Market Square garage and six others at the Civic Coliseum garage are expected to be ready by the end of the month.
