The hunt is on for Chattanooga’s electric vehicle charging stations

EPB, CARTA and the Tennessee Valley Authority have launched the #ChargingChattanooga campaign, which turns Gig City’s CARTA electric vehicle charging network into a scavenger hunt to win prizes.

Participants can join the hunt by finding one or more of #ChargingChattanooga’s 14 charging locations and snapping a photo.

To enter the sweepstakes, share your photos on Instagram and tag @TVA using the hashtags #ChargingChattanooga and #sweepstakes.

“We want to engage the community in learning more about electric vehicles and charging stations so more people can become familiar with how easy it is to drive an EV,” says Ray Knotts, TVA senior manager of Energy Services & Programs. “Your photo will help increase EV awareness and adoption in Chattanooga.”

“Thanks to a wide range of partners, Chattanooga already has an extensive network of electric vehicle charging stations,” says Bill Copeland of EPB’s Strategic Research group. “Through this partnership with TVA and CARTA, we’re working to make our community more aware of how many charging options are available for those who drive EVs in our community.”

Multiple entries can be made and weekly and monthly prizes will be awarded, such as an electric scooter, an Airbnb getaway, and the chance to take the wheel in an EV driving experience.

Entries will be accepted through May 30. Learn more at chargingchattanooga.com.
