Walgreens and Car Charging Group have expanded electric vehicle (EV) charging services to 13 Walgreens locations in Orlando and Tampa/St Petersburg in Florida, US.
The parties intend to expand their EV charging services with more locations in major metropolitan cities in Florida as well as in other cities including Phoenix, Arizona; Akron, Canton and Columbus, Ohio; and Austin, Texas.
Car Charging Group has deployed its fast charging stations at multiple Walgreens locations in Orlando and in the Tampa/St Petersburg area.
Walgreens market vice president Marlin Hutchens environmental sustainability is part of Walgreens commitment to help its customers live well, stay well and get well.
"As more people choose greener, healthier lifestyles, we are excited to work with Car Charging Group to expand convenient EV charging options in the Orlando and Tampa/St. Petersburg areas as well as in several new states and markets to come," Hutchens said.
The company deploys fast EV charging stations, known as Level II, which provide 240V with 32A of power, in order to quickly refuel an electric vehicle’s battery.
The EV charging stations utilize the standard SAE J1772 connector widely adopted by nearly all automobile manufacturers.
CarCharging’s RFID card also allows the driver to use other charging locations that are on the ChargePoint Network.
