You have an electric car, but where to charge it when you’re away from home? Soon you may be able to plug in at at your nearest Walgreens.
The drugstore chain has announced that plans to install about 800 electric vehicle charging stations by the end of the year. Walgreens already has installations under way for EV charging stations at more than 60 stores across Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth and Chicago.
The charging stations are also planned for Boston, Denver, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. Select locations in Florida, New Jersey, Oregon, Tennessee and Washington will also receive EV charging stations. Installation begins later this month.
The charging stations will feature either a high-speed direct current (DC) charger that can add 30 miles of range in as little as 10 minutes of charging time, or a Level 2 charger that can add up to 25 miles of range per hour of charge.
