EV Charging Coming to Walgreens
Walgreens has announced its plans to install 800 EV charging stations by the year’s end. The chain will have the most EV stations out of any retailer.
Already tested out in Dallas and Chicago this spring, the stations will initially be rolled out to New York, Houston, Los Angeles, Washingron D.C., and other areas. Level 2 and Level 3 chargers will be used, with the former charging about 25 miles / hour and the latter around 3 miles / minute.
“Consumer interest and enthusiasm has been incredible and we’re excited to provide locations to charge up in neighborhoods across the country,” stated Walgreens President of Community Management and Operations, Mark Wagner.
“As more Americans embrace environmentally sustainable technologies, our convenient locations make us uniquely positioned to help address the concern around accessibility or ‘range confidence.’ According to the Department of Energy, Walgreens will make up as much as 40 percent of all public EV charging stations across the country, making it easy for EV drivers to look to our stores for a quick charge near major highways, metropolitan areas or right in their neighborhood.”
