Yep. That’s the count of Electric Vehicle charging stations in Green Hills and East Nashville. How come a chic area of town has zero charging stations while East Nashville sports 10? Interestingly Belle Meade only has one at the Belle Meade Publix. The ‘rich’ areas of town have little to no investment in EV infrastructure. It’s a mystery to me.
The only rational I can come up with is that parking is so tight in Green Hills they don’t want to dedicate spaces to EV’s. Or is this a Conservative vs Liberal split? I’d love to hear your opinions.
The list of charging spaces in East Nashville are as follows.
Shelby Park – 4
Integrated Solar – 3
Urban Housing Solutions – 2
The Green Wagon – 1
If you are to include LP Field in East Nashville then you can add 8 more charging units to the total.
Update 2012-08-25: Just a week after posting this blog article, 4 more EV charging stations have been installed in East Nashville at the East Community Center next to East Park on Woodland Street. That takes the east Nashville count up to 14 now. Green Hills still stuck at zero.
