Story: KEVA has been operating in the greater Knoxville area for over a decade and is the core group that holds Ride & Drives in the area. To boot, they have been growing over the last few years and are currently the strongest group of EV owners in Tennessee that works on educating others. However, the Knoxville community has all kinds of active participants in the process of advocating for and furthering EV adoption, none the least of which is Knoxville Utilities Board (KUB). KUB released a incentive program – the first in Tennessee – that provides $400 if you purchase an EV and install a home charging unit. Additionally, if you want to thank someone for all the EV charging spots that are located in downtown parking garages, at city parks, and in other locations, thank Brian Blackmon and the staff in the Office of Sustainability for the City of Knoxville.
