Why drive an EV?

What is the “TN Workplace Charging Partnership”?

What is Workplace Charging? The process of adding EV charging stations at businesses so that employees can charge their vehicles at work! This increases the driving distance that any EV can drive after work.

What is this Partnership? The “Tennessee Workplace Charging Partnership” (TWCP) is a new cooperative of nonprofits, state agencies and industry partners that are helping Tennessee businesses learn about and place EV charging equipment onsite!
