CARTA-TVA Solar Assisted Electric Vehicle Charging and Car Share Project
The Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA) has entered into a funding and partnership agreement with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) to expand electric vehicle charging infrastructure and to create a new transportation alternative through an electric vehicle car‐sharing system. The first phase of this project funds the development, system design, siting, construction, operation, reporting, and management of an electric vehicle charging system with approximately twenty locations in the Chattanooga area, and also the development of solar energy generation facilities at separate sites which are integrated into the local power grid. Phase Two of the project will be the development and deployment of an electric vehicle car‐sharing system which will be operated from the new vehicle charging stations across the community, and will serve as a new component of an integrated public transportation system in Chattanooga. Project Dates: 2014 – 2018.
