Electric Charging Station Arrives at Chamber Office
The Blount Partnership, in conjunction with the Black Bear Solar Institute, are proud to have electric vehicle charging stations at both its Maryville and Townsend offices.
The Townsend Visitor's Center charging station has been in operation since December, while the Chamber Office location went into operation over the weekend.
Black Bear Solar Institute is sponsoring and operating 24 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in Blount County. Six are in Maryville and 18 are in Townsend.
Townsend is the most EV friendly City on Planet Earth with 18 public EV charging stations sponsored and operated by Black Bear Solar Institute for a population of 545 people. One public charging station per 30 residents gives it the highest per-capita availability for EV charging in the world. Most are located along the bike and walking paths that extend the length of the City of Townsend. Six more BBSI charging stations are located along the route through Blount County to Townsend.
