Huntsville opens fast-charging EV station

Published on June 28, 2024

The City of Huntsville, Huntsville Utilities, Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), Seven States Power Corporation, and ChargePoint/Owl Services hosted a ribbon cutting to open a new electric vehicle DC fast charger facility (DCFC) in the Publix parking garage at Twickenham Square, 310 Pelham Avenue.

This facility, which can accommodate up to four EVs, is part of TVA’s initiative to have fast chargers at least every 50 miles throughout the TVA service area. Funding for the chargers came from an 80/20 split between TVA and Huntsville Utilities (respectively). A DCFC can charge a typical EV to 80% in 20 minutes to an hour.

“Huntsville and Madison County have seen significant growth in the number of EVs in recent years,” said Quisha Bryant, Director of Parking and Public Transit for the City of Huntsville. “We appreciate our partnership with Huntsville Utilities, TVA, and all those involved to bring more rapid charging infrastructure to our community.”
