Rivian will install Waypoint chargers in all 56 Tennessee state parks

Tennessee is the next state to partner with electric vehicle maker Rivian on a plan to install EV charging points in outdoorsy places. The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) announced a deal whereby Rivian would build Waypoint Level 2 chargers in all 56 of the state's parks. Site surveys are to begin in the fall, the final Waypoint is planned to be up and running by March of next year. Each station will provide up to 11.5 kilowatts of power, enough to add about 25 miles of range per hour, and will be available to any EV compatible with the J1772 plug, which is every modern EV on the market. Clearly, these aren't top-up-and-go systems, but they would provide great refill timing during an afternoon hike or overnight camp to the venturesome owners Rivian's targeting.
