Casey’s Doubles Stores With EV Chargers , Offers Biofuels
Casey’s General Stores, Inc. expands its alternative fuel options and doubled the number of EV charging stations across its 16-state footprint.
In addition to offering biofuel options, Casey’s expansion of alternative fuels can most notably be seen with the recent addition of the company’s 11th Tesla Supercharger at its Urbana, Illinois location.
Casey’s has 134 EV chargers across 28 locations in the Midwest and South with plans to add more chargers in 2023. Each of these locations is equipped with DC fast-charging while select locations offer level 2 charging in addition to multiple plug options.
To support its EV-related efforts, Casey’s is building partnerships with local and national organizations, including Electrify America and EV manufacturers. The company also has participated in grant opportunities with local utilities such as MidAmerican Energy in Iowa and Omaha Public Power District in Nebraska.
Casey’s offers biofuels in the 16 states where it operates with higher ethanol and biodiesel blends located across the Casey’s footprint. In 2022, renewable blended fuels increased to approximately 87% of all fuel sales. Casey’s also supports the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s biofuel goals as the USDA works to boost the domestic supply of clean fuels.
“At Casey’s, we strive to build a sustainable future for our team members, guests and the communities in which we live and work,” said Darren Rebelez, president and CEO of Casey’s in a statement. “As part of our environmental stewardship efforts, we are exploring a number of ways to provide our guests with more lower carbon fuel options, including biofuels and EV charging stations.”
