Vehicle Emissions Reduction and Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Project Funding

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) provides funding for the repower or replacement of Class 4-8 school, shuttle and transit buses, Class 4-7 local freight trucks, and Class 8 local freight trucks and port drayage trucks, with alternative fuel or all-electric models. Alternative fuels include, but are not limited to, compressed natural gas, propane, and hybrid electric technologies. Private, public, and non-profit organizations, including state, local, and tribal governments, are eligible for funding.

In partnership with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), TDEC also provides funding for the Fast Charge TN Network, which supports the deployment of direct current (DC) fast charging stations. Eligible applicants include TVA-served Local Power Companies whose service territory is located along corridors.

The grant programs are funded in part by Tennessee’s portion of the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust. For more information, including funding availability, see the TDEC Project Solicitations and Fast Charge TN Network websites.
