The Nashville International Airport (BNA) is installing several EV charging stations in their short term parking lot. They are housed underneath a solar canopy on the top deck. Two 240v Level 2 charging stations and one Eaton CHAdeMO DC Fast Charge unit will be operational soon.
The cost is very reasonable. $2 per charge session starting in June 2015, until then they are free to use once the installation is completed.
One very refreshing feature of these units is the inclusion of a credit card reader for activation. No ‘charging network cards’ are required to activate the units. I wish more charging stations followed the standard credit card model utilized at gas stations. I have no problem with an additional loyalty card(s) to get a discount or other benefits.
The first 20 minutes of short term parking is free at the airport. So it is conceivable one could rapid charge for $2 and not incur a parking fee!!
Well done Nashville Airport, you have a done a great job all round with this installation. It promises to be the best EV charging location in the Nashville area.
