Kroger, a Cincinnati-based grocery giant, has added hundreds of EV charging stations to its stores. The stations are from a collaboration with Tesla, Volta, and Blink.
Currently, 350 chargers have been installed across Arizona, Colorado, California, Indiana, Georgia, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and there are plans to get them into Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, Tennessee, Michigan, and Virginia.
"Increasing our customers' access to EV charging stations at convenient Kroger locations supports our collective transition to a lower-carbon economy; we are leveraging technology and innovation to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and are offering customers easy ways to live a more sustainable lifestyle," says Kroger Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer Yael Cosset.
Currently, Kroger has a sustainability goal in place to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030. Kroger started purchasing green power back in 2019 to expand on their sustainability initiatives, and as of last year, they've installed solar arrays at 15 different facilities.
