CarCharging and Walgreens Expand Availability of Electric Vehicle Charging Services to the Midwest

Last year, CarCharging launched the rollout of Walgreens EV charging services at eight locations in Kissimmee and Orlando, Fla.

“As a company committed to helping people reduce their impact on the environment, we are proud to continue our work with Walgreens to expand EV charging opportunities in the Midwest,” said Michael D. Farkas, CEO of CarCharging.”Being able to access convenient locations to charge your EV is imperative to the adoption of electric vehicles, and we are thankful to Walgreens for their support.”

“Walgreens has a long-standing commitment to the environment and expanding its renewable energy and efficiency initiatives,” said Menno Enters, Walgreens director of energy and sustainability.”By offering up some of the country’s best locations, our sites will help provide convenient locations for EV drivers to recharge during their visit to our stores.”

CarCharging’s services utilize EV charging stations, known as Level II, which provide 240 volts with 32 amps of power to quickly recharge an electric vehicle’s battery. EV drivers can easily request CarCharging’s evCharge card online, and attach the small card to their keychain to initiate use and payment at any CarCharging station within the network. CarCharging’s evCharge card also allows drivers to use charging locations on the ChargePoint(R) Network, the largest national online network connecting EV drivers to EV charging stations. CarCharging also accepts direct payment via credit card.
