Casey Jones Village celebrated the installation of three charging stations, Thursday afternoon. The Blink electric vehicle charging stations are the only publicly available stations between Memphis and Nashville. The three Blink Level 2 charging stations can accommodate several electric vehicles including the all-electric Nissan LEAF. “We are so proud to be a part of this progressive initiative. It is sustainable tourism at its finest,” Clark Shaw, Old Country Store CEO, said. He continued, “With our travel attraction on Interstate 40 at exit 80A, we feel this is an ideal and convenient location. We wanted Jackson to be a leader in this important program as the country builds the electric car charging infrastructure and helps our country decrease our dependence on foreign oil.” Jeremy Court, the Tennessee Sales Manager for Ecotality, said, “One of the reasons why Casey Jones was chosen was because this isn’t necessarily a spot that somebody’s going to stop and only be here for 5 or 10 minutes. This is a place where somebody will spend 30 minutes plus, and will get a substantial boost to their state of charge. Casey Jones Village is located in Jackson, Tennessee at I-40 exit 80A and includes Brooks Shaw’s Old Country Store, Casey Jones Home & Railroad Museum and the Shoppes at Casey Jones Village.
