The EV Project will soon be affecting every Tennessean, especially here in the eastern part of the state. In order to educate citizens, cities, and counties about charging stations and their locations, ECOtality and ETCleanFuels are hosting a Free Webinar on October 28th from 2-3 pm. This is your chance to have all your questions answered about electric vehicles, charging stations, and the EV infrastructure in East Tennessee.

Electric vehicles (EVs) and EV infrastructure are expanding quickly, and significant federal focus exists on working to continue increasing EV use in our region. Understanding the basics about the project, the equipment and it's benefits to the U.S. and the environment will help you be better prepared for what is coming.

The definition of an electric vehicle is any car, truck, bus, or van that is powered solely by electricity, which is stored in onboard batteries. These batteries are charged either using solar cells or electricity generated from the utility grid. EV's are considered zero-emissions vehicles because their motors are emissions free. As electricity production becomes cleaner through alternative methods such as solar or wind power, electric vehicles will only get greener.

Currently, Senator Lamar Alexander drives a Prius, but soon he'll be driving an all electric Nissan LEAF.

EV's can be a cost-saving opportunity for individuals and businesses. This is a great opportunity to see how these vehicles could be an long-term economical investment for you and your company.
