Tullahoma Hopes To Have Charging Station

In an effort to promote electric vehicle use, the City of Tullahoma is on its way to partnering with a project to have two charging stations at C.D. Stamps Community Center. City Administrator Jody Baltz said the Board of Mayor and Aldermen is considering an agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy and ECOtality North America Inc. Baltz said the only other charging facility in the immediate area is at the Cracker Barrel restaurant in Manchester. Since re-charging takes at least 30 minutes, Baltz said it will give those who are charging their cars a chance to use the community center’s recreational facilities.
