Electric vehicle charging stations will be installed at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.

It will be part of the EV Project, the largest deployment of EV charging infrastructure in history.

The medical center said in a news release that it will participate in the pilot rollout that will install more than 15,000 charging stations by June 2011 in 16 cities in six states and Washington, D.C.

The center will receive six to 10 stations free of charge to be used in public parking areas. The estimated installation date is February.

Center officials said they already have received calls from staff members on the waiting list for a vehicle who want to know if charging will be available on campus.
