Plugging In Knoxville
Jake Tisinger has been on the job as the city of Knoxville's Sustainability Coordinator, a position that is new for many communities across America. The difference is, his state and community has been selected for the installation of federally-funded public charging stations.
At the moment, the city is planning to create a strategically dispersed network of Ecotality Blink chargers and at the moment are negotiating the fine print with the goal being more than 30 Level II chargers that can provide cars like the Nissan LEAF, which also will be built in Tennessee eventually.
In this 30-minute EV World Future In Motion podcast, Tisinger discusses how the city is handling the task of selecting the locations for public chargers based on the principle of 'Live - Work - Play.' At the moment, there are two public chargers in the city at the Crown Plaza Hotel.
