Meijer plans EV charging installations across Midwestern superstores
Meijer will soon be installing electric vehicle charging stations at its Midwestern supercenters through a new partnership announced March 18.
The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer partnered with EVgo to install more than 800 fast charging locations starting this summer. Meijer has previously offered EV charging at some stores across Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois and Wisconsin and at its corporate headquarters, a program which will be expanded through this new partnership.
The charging stations will be capable of 100 kW to 350 kW of fast changing and will be managed and operated on an ongoing basis by EVgo.
“Meijer is excited to partner with EVgo to bring EV charging stations to more of the communities we serve,” Erik Petrovskis, director of environmental compliance and sustainability at Meijer, said in a statement. “Enabling the adoption of electric vehicles is a vital part of decarbonizing passenger vehicle transportation, and Meijer can play a role in enabling that transition.”
