Tennessee Technological University (TNTech) presents the 2021 Spring Webinar Series “Preparing Rural Communities for Electric Vehicles – The User Experience” that is part of TNTech’s “Developing an EV Demonstration Testbed in the Upper Cumberland” Project.
Come register for these free webinars, where current electric vehicle (EV) drivers and utility and energy business leaders will provide insight and will cover a range of topics from what it’s like to drive an EV, day-in and day-out, while providing what the bigger plan is that will directly affect rural communities with a focus on the “Upper Cumberland” (UC) area of Tennessee, a 14-county region in the middle of our state.
This is the second webinar of this Spring 2021 series where our focus will be on light-duty electric vehicle (EV) user experiences on Wed, April 21st. We will cover EV 101 to more advanced topics. Lastly, this webinar will also showcase EV representatives that will provide a broader perspective on working in the rural community.
Last but not least, we will highlight that project and the opportunity it presents to regional citizens to test drive an EV at no cost to them for up to two weeks. For those who qualify, you can apply to be part of TNTech’s “EV Rural Testbed” project catering to the 14-county Upper Cumberland region. (To learn more about this project and opportunity for UC citizens to test drive an EV, please contact Dr. Pingen Chen at at TNTech at email@example.com.
