SVEC to Add EV Fast Charging Stations in Kimball

Sequachee Valley Electric Cooperative is one of 12 entities the Tennessee Department of Environment, and Conservation (TDEC) chose to receive grants for two EV fast charging stations. The stations will be located near Interstate 24 in Kimball.

The 12 chosen projects will receive $5.2 million in total grant funding to install direct current fast charging (DCFC) infrastructure for electric vehicles (EVs) along prioritized interstate or significant highway corridors across the state.

TVA anticipates funding 21 projects in Tennessee, including installing 56 total charging units at 27 sites. This investment is part of TVA’s broader Fast Charge Network that aims to reduce barriers to EV adoption by deploying fast chargers at least every 50 miles along the interstates and major highways across its 7-state service territory by 2026.
