USA: Solar-powered charging station set to open; Located at Shelby Farms

By the end of the month, another electric vehicle charging station will be in place in Greater Memphis.
This will be the first West Tennessee solar-powered station, one of three in the state, and is being built at Shelby Farms Park next to the Visitor’s Center at 500 N. Pine Lake Drive just off Walnut Grove.
The next step is solar panels, said Linda Brashear,the park’s strategic operations director.
So far, The Peabody hotel has four chargers. The contracts have been approved to install six chargers in and around Municipal Square in Germantown. The Family Taekwondo Center in Collierville has two chargers.
The electrical chargers are similar to gas pumps and will provide a one-hour charge.
Unlike gasoline or diesel powered engines, EVs as they are called run on big batteries and are charged by plugging them into a charger. Chevy makes the Volt, which has both a battery and an almost nine-gallon, gas-powered generator. Nissan makes the Leaf, which is all electric. Nissan’s North American plant in Smyrna, Tenn., is scheduled to build 150,000 Leafs this year.
Other EVs are made by BMW, Ford, Mitsubishi. Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Volkswagen and Rolls-Royce.
