VEC Installs Electric Vehicle Chargers in Brydstown/Jamestown
In partnership with a Tennessee Tech research project and Seven States Power Corporation, VEC installed a Charge Pointnet Electric Vehicle dual point charger in Byrdstown and Jamestown, Tennessee.
VEC began coordinating with TVPPA to install electric vehicle chargers along the I-75 and I-40 corridors in 2019. Tennessee Tech met with VEC and others to discuss the installation of chargers in Jamestown and Byrdstown in October. TN Tech received a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to pay for a testbed project. This grant included the cost of the chargers. Seven States coordinated the EV charging station effort on the Cumberland Plateau.
VEC selected two sites for Charge Pointnet Chargers. In January 2021, VEC, TN Tech and Seven States installed a charger in Byrdstown at the library. Jamestown’s charging station was installed in February at their library.
VEC is committed to providing our consumer-members with the resources they need for a changing world.
