First electric vehicle charging station opens in Memphis

By Mary Cashiola

The Peabody Hotel recently completed the installation of their Blink Level 2 charging station for electric vehicles (EVs). The charging station is open to the public and can accommodate the all-electric Nissan LEAF.

While the Peabody Hotel station is the first publicly available charging station installed in the Memphis area through The EV Project, they are working with their partners to determine the best sites for charging station installations, and are taking into account traffic patterns and the locations of employment centers, regional attractions, and retail hubs. The EV Project is the largest deployment of electric vehicles and charge infrastructure in history. Nissan LEAF drivers who qualify to participate in The EV Project will receive a residential charger at no cost.
