City may get electric car charging station

Drivers of electric cars may have a place to recharge their vehicles locally in the near future.

The City of Tullahoma is on its way to partnering on a project that will put two charging stations at C.D. Stamps Community Center.

Tullahoma City Administrator Jody Baltz said the Board of Mayor and Aldermen will consider an agreement to install the charging stations with the U.S. Department of Energy and ECOtality North America Inc. at its 5:30 p.m. Monday meeting at city hall.

ECOtality is an Arizona-based company that installs electric vehicle charging stations.

Baltz said the only other charging facility in the immediate area is at the Cracker Barrel restaurant in Manchester.

Cracker Barrel has partnered with ECOtality to install 24 of its Blink electric vehicle charging stations in its Tennessee stores, and Manchester has one of them.

Since recharging takes at least 30 minutes, Baltz said it will give those who are charging their cars a chance to use the community center’s recreational facilities.

Tullahoma’s electric vehicle project will be funded through a combination of government grants and private sources, Baltz said.
