Electrify America and Walmart have teamed up to open more than 120 plus ultra-fast electric vehicle charging stations to the public at the retailer’s stores across the U.S., with more on the way.
The charging station rollout builds on an original commitment set in April 2018. The companies intend to open additional Electrify America charging stations at Walmart locations across the U.S. Plans focus on establishing charging stations at Walmart stores operating in urban areas such as the District of Columbia as part of an expansion that will encompass 46 states including California.
“Along with providing our customers with an enhanced shopping experience through added convenience, this initiative also allows us to contribute to the expansion and accessibility of our nation’s EV charging station infrastructure,” said Mark Vanderhelm, Walmart vp/energy. “Many of our Walmart associates and customers are EV drivers so providing access to these stations is the right thing to do for our customers, our business and the environment.”
