Looks like we here in Nashville are making some great electrifying waves, we have one thing in commen, the Leaf, Nissan, and Nashville; that is the fact that they all are involved in building the first EV charging station Network in the US.

DORGAN, ALEXANDER AND MERKLEY INTRODUCE FIRST-EVER NATIONWIDE BILL TO ENCOURAGE ELECTRIC VEHICLE DEPLOYMENT

Washington, DC— Senators Byron Dorgan (D-ND), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), and Jeff Merkley (D-OR) introduced today the “Electric Vehicle Deployment Act of 2010,” a bill that promotes the rapid, near-term deployment of plug-in electric drive motor vehicles. The bill would create “deployment communities” across the country, where targeted incentive programs for electric vehicles and charging infrastructure systems would help demonstrate rapid market penetration and determine what “best practices” would be helpful for nationwide deployment of electric vehicles.

So now that I have reserved my spot in the Leaf – long List of orders, I am naturally eager to see what our plug-in Charger infrastructure efforts are like here in Nashville, TN.

The EV Project is very well on its way to meet the goals in order to make the Leaf launch a success.

Just look at this:
