EVgo Partners with Meijer to Install EV Charging Stations

THE SHOPEVgo, a public fast-charging network for electric vehicles (EVs) powered by 100% renewable electricity, has formed a new partnership with Meijer, a Midwestern retailer, to install EV charging stations at its grocery store locations, the company announced.

The EVgo public fast-charging stations will start rolling out this summer and will add to the more than 800 fast-charging locations EVgo already owns and operates today. EVgo charging stations are capable of powering all fast-charge capable vehicles on the road today, including Teslas, pick-up trucks and newly announced vehicles scheduled to come to market in the next year.

EVgo announced a new partnership with midwestern retailer Meijer to install EV charging stations at its supercenters. The grocery chain has more than 250 supercenters across Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois and Wisconsin. Since 2010, Meijer has been offering EV charging facilities at select stores and on its corporate campus.

“Meijer and EVgo share an unwavering commitment to customer convenience and sustainability,” said Cathy Zoi, CEO of EVgo. “Enabling drivers to fast charge while they shop is what EVgo does, and it makes it easy for Americans to make EVs a part of their everyday lifestyle. An EVgo station attracts new and repeat customers looking to fast charge their vehicles up to 80% in 15 to 30 minutes. This new partnership between EVgo and Meijer is a huge win for drivers and our two companies.”

Meijer customers will have access to EVgo charging stations capable of 100 kW to 350 kW fast charging.  In addition to providing accessible and conveniently located public fast-charging stations, EVgo will manage the installation and ongoing operation and maintenance of the charging station. This eliminates the need for Meijer team members or facilities support to manage the stations.

“Meijer is excited to partner with EVgo to bring EV charging stations to more of the communities we serve. 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,” said Erik Petrovskis, Meijer director of environmental compliance and sustainability.
