Volta announces the installation of 1,000 electric vehicle fast-charging stalls at over 500 Walgreens locations in the U.S.
Volta (NYSE: VLTA) is an electric vehicle (EV) charging company that focuses on locations where people live, shop, work, and play.
The company announced an expansion of the Walgreens partnership.
Volta will install 1,000 fast-charging stalls at over 500 Walgreens locations in the United States.
It has fast-charging stations at 49 Walgreens locations, as the partnership began in 2019.
“As we expand our DC Fast charging presence across the country, Walgreens is an ideal match for faster forms of Volta charging given the average time a Walgreens shopper typically spends in-store,” said Scott Mercer, Founder and CEO of Volta.
Retail locations are excellent for EV fast-charging stations. It allows people to charge their EV while they shop.
With the expansion of charging infrastructure, people are more likely to be confident in switching to an EV.
The Volta chargers have large screens on the side. Companies can display ads, and the Walgreens Advertising Group will handle them.
Luke Kigel, vice president of Walgreens integrated media and leader of Walgreens Advertising Group, states, “Volta’s electric chargers allow Walgreens to seamlessly bring customers unique advertising and convenience experiences with eye-catching screens and quick, convenient charging to match their behavior, all while helping to build healthier communities through reducing vehicle emissions.”
