KNOXVILLE (AP) – Researchers in Knoxville have dedicated an electric vehicle charging station.

Right now its only for testing, but it can make electricity from sunlight and put electricity back in the power grid.

The Tennessee Valley Authority and the Electric Power Research Institute dedicated the charging station and showed what it can do at a Tuesday demonstration with electric vehicles built by Nissan, General Motors and Mitsubishi.

A TVA statement said Oak Ridge National Laboratory and local power companies are partners in the project, which cost $500,000 to $600,000. Another power station is being built at Oak Ridge.

The charging stations will be tested up to six months. Others will be built in Knoxville, Chattanooga and Nashville.
