8/10/22 – Little Rock & Pocahontas, AR — Today’s Power EV, LLC. (TPEV) is leading the way in Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. With the growing number of EVs, electric cooperatives across the state are working with TPEV to install EV chargers to ensure that charging is more accessible to members and citizens alike.
TPEV, a wholly owned subsidiary of Today’s Power, Inc. (TPI), will own, operate, and maintain the chargers as part of a statewide EV charging network buildout program. Clay County Electric Cooperative Corp. (CCECC) recently became the first Arkansas electric cooperative to join this program and install a level 2 charger at their Pocahontas-based district office. David Smith the General Manager of CCECC stated, “Thanks to Derek and his team at Today’s Power for the opportunity to partner with them to help put EV chargers near the Highway 67 corridor.”
Multiple benefits result from installation of these chargers in electric cooperative territories, not only does it offer a place to charge for EV drivers in largely rural areas, but also allows for member and staff use, educational opportunities, fleet use and much more.
Level 2 chargers are commonly placed in areas where drivers will spend more than 30 minutes, such as restaurants, shopping malls, schools, businesses, parks, community centers and more. With this new program TPEV hopes to expand the EV charging landscape and bring equitable charger accessibility to every corner of the state.
Jennah Denney, the EV Charging Infrastructure Program Manager at TPI said, “working with David and his staff at CCECC to increase EV charging opportunities for Pocahontas and the surrounding communities is a great pleasure. I congratulate the CCECC team for being one of the first to provide their office as a designated charging location to improve the quality of life in the communities CCECC serves.
