First Tennessee Rural Planning Organization
NADO Peer Exchange Presentation May 10th, 2024
Bridge over
Spivey Creek,
Unicoi County
Tennessee
The Appalachian Highlands/Tri-Cities is a Combined Statistical Area of more than 500,000 residents. Johnson City
placed as #14 on Forbes’ Best Small Places for Business and Careers List recently, and as one of The 10 least
Expensive Places for Living in the US by Kiplinger. The attributes of affordable housing and below average utility,
transportation and healthcare costs are shared by each of the communities across the Tri-Cities.
Northeast Tennessee’s Tri-Cities of Bristol, Kingsport, Johnson City and small
towns along the way make up a diverse region of outdoor recreation, music,
history and everything in between.
First TN RPO Region
What is an RPO?
• Rural Planning Organization
• Formed in 2005 to enhance state- and regional-level
partnerships in rural areas for transportation planning
purposes
• 12 RPO’s within Tennessee
• Funding for transportation projects and programs are
channeled through this planning process
• FTRPO housed within the FTDD (one of nine Development
Districts in TN)
What is the purpose of the RPO?
• The purpose of an RPO is to involve local officials in
multimodal transportation planning, through a structured
process, to ensure quality, competence, and fairness in the
transportation decision-making process.
What does the RPO do?
• Consider multimodal transportation needs on a local and
regional basis
• Review long-term needs as well as short-term funding
priorities
• Rural regional transportation planning
• RPO centric Task 5 Work Plan Objectives (Ex. EVSE/Climate)
• Make recommendations to TDOT
RPO EVSE/Climate Opportunities Underway
• EMPOWER
• NEVI/TEVI (TDOT)
• USDOT R.O.U.T.E.S Toolkit
• DOE

in Johnson County, TN
FTRPO has partnered with Tennessee Tech University (Project Lead) on the newly awarded
Rural Reimagined: Building an EV Ecosystem and Green Economy for Transforming Lives in Economically Distressed
Appalachia (DE Control Number: 2475-1693)
• The project aims to provide clean and affordable mobility options to the underserved communities by developing needed
charging infrastructure, and adopting and demonstrating various cost-effective EVs in diverse applications
• 40 partners across five subprojects in five central Appalachian states (OH, TN, WV, KY, and VA)
1) Multi-layer Charging Infrastructure Development:
2) EV Acquisition and Demonstration
3) Data Collection and Analysis
4) Information Exchange, Outreach and Education
5) Workforce Training and Economic Development
Rural Reimagined : Vanguard of the Rural TN EV infrastructure revolution

Mtn. City to Memphis Road Trip Lessons Learned
 Tennessee is EV ready already! 154 DCFC Locations (572 ports), 714 L2 locations (1392 L2 ports)
 TEVI build out is eliminating range anxiety w/19 Fast Charge Stations today (42 DCFC plugs)
 Projected EV Range vs. Actual Mileage Range is a challenge when driving solo
 It’s great to create partnerships with Clean Cities Coalitions (East TN Clean Fuels), and Universities
 Always be prepared for externalities and mishaps
 Read PlugShare Reviews – Especially Recent EVSE Site Location Charging Status Commentary
 EV driving co-pilots are ideal for on the fly EVSE locating to help prevent distracted driving
 Charging Apps currently can take your money with no $$$ return available

Editor's Notes

  1. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) (also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, or BIL) includes a total of up to $7.5 billion in dedicated funding to help make electric vehicle (EV) charging stations accessible to all Americans for local and long-distance trips. That funding includes a $5 billion National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program that helps states create a network of EV charging stations along Alternative Fuel Corridors designated by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). States must submit comprehensive plans to the U.S. Joint Office of Energy and Transportation (Joint Office) by August of each year to receive NEVI Formula Program funds. The Tennessee Departments of Transportation (TDOT) and Environment and Conservation (TDEC) are working collaboratively to implement an EV Infrastructure Deployment Plan that details how Tennessee will use NEVI Formula Program Funds.
  2. EV charging infrastructure acquired or installed with NEVI Formula Program funds should be located along a designated Alternative Fuel Corridor until all Alternative Fuel Corridors in the state are designated as “fully built out” by the Secretary of Transportation. An Alternative Fuel Corridor will be considered “fully built out” only once the following criteria are met: Charging infrastructure is installed every 50 miles Chargers are no farther than one mile from corridors Each charging location includes at least four 150kW Direct Current (DC) Fast Chargers These four chargers use Combined Charging System (CCS) ports The station can simultaneously charge at least four EVs at 150 kW 19 Fast Charging Sites to date (42 DCFC’s), with 24 more planned with LPC’s
  3. The District’s population increased from 506,266 in 2010 to 516,931 in 2020, a 10,665 person or 2.1% increase. Washington County had the largest increase in population for the region’s eight counties. Washington County’s population increased from 122,979 in 2010 to 133,001 in 2020, a 10,022 person or 8.2% increase.
  4. The RPO is supporting the project by serving on the steering committee, sharing and gathering information with local stakeholders, and attend monthly meetings. Purpose To educate the local government, local power companies, and First TN RPO members on the importance and benefits of Electric Vehicle infrastructure and alternative fuels; provide tools to communities to create resiliency and reliability in transportation systems
  5. 11 sites identified for year 1 of program.
  6. Since the First TN RPO was formed in 2005-2006, the main goal of the program has been to assist local governments with identifying multi-modal rural transportation needs through the Development District. As transportation funding mechanisms change throughout the District and nation, the RPO process will continue to be a valuable tool for local governments.
