LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – A grocery store plans to bring electric vehicle charging stations to their stores.
The Cincinnati-based company, Kroger, said they have already implemented more than 350 charges in parts of the country including Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.
Future locations are planned for Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Tennessee, Virginia, and Kentucky.
“Increasing our customers’ access to EV charging stations at convenient Kroger locations supports our collective transition to a lower-carbon economy,” said Yael Cosset, senior vice president and chief information officer for Kroger. “We are leveraging technology and innovation to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and are offering customers easy ways to live a more sustainable lifestyle.”
The charging stations will feature providers such as Blink, Electrify America, EVgo, Tesla, and Volta, with charging times ranging from 10 to 30 minutes on average.
Electric vehicle charging stations are expected to be implemented in locations across Kentucky by the end of 2022.
