Tennessee Solar Carport Plugs ZAP Electric Truck

The Southeast's first solar parking structure was dedicated in Tennessee with the help of a ZAP electric truck.

A ZAP XL electric truck was on hand for the opening of a new solar parking facility.

Parking lots are going solar all over the world, but the first one in the Southeastern United States was dedicated this week in the EV-friendly state of Tennessee with the help of a ZAP XL electric truck.

Solar Parking Structure in TN

Pulaski, Tennessee dedicated its first parking area solar array with integrated electric vehicle (EV) charging capacity capable of generating over 20kW of electricity. Congressman Lincoln Davis did the honors of switching on the array, sending the sun’s energy into the grid. Located at Richland, LLC in Pulaski, Tenn., this solar array represents the first step in a growing EV charging network. The parking array produces enough energy to run nearly four typical American homes and is an integral part to the success of EVs.

Organizers had the ZAP XL electric truck on hand to demonstrate the solar charging station and give test rides.   ZAP has sold several hundred electric trucks to the U.S. Government, U.S. Army, Park Services, Universities, Hospitals, Municipalities, Corporations, Small Businesses and individuals.  You can even order your XL truck with a solar panel.

The project was made possible with cooperation of the State of Tennessee, the USDA, Pulaski Electric System and Tennessee Valley Authority.
