WinCo Foods recent partnership with EVgo (the nation’s largest public fast charging network for electric vehicles) is just one way this family-owned grocer is doing their part to support sustainable energy. EVgo opened their first public fast charging station in Nevada at the WinCo Las Vegas location. The charging station boasts four 350kW and 100kW chargers for WinCo customers. “WinCo is happy to play our part in the reduction of carbon emissions in our operating areas,” said Noah Fleisher, corporate spokesperson at WinCo Foods. “We hope the charging station at our Las Vegas store becomes a destination for EV users and can help encourage others to make the change.”
EVgo’s retail network is growing, and WinCo is just one of the latest companies to partner in additional to General Motors and Pilot/Flying J truck stops. The EVgo charging stations will expand from the Nevada WinCo location to additional stores within WinCo’s more than 100 retail locations across the U.S. EVgo chargers work with all EV’s that have the capability to fast charge. Drivers who use EV charging stations have four payment options: EVgo app, program card, Autocharge+, or credit card, plus an option for those with an account to earn points every time they charge up
Stores in California, Texas, Arizona, Washington, Oregon, and Utah will be receiving EVgo fast charging stations as part WinCo’s goal of reducing carbon emissions. The expansion of EVgo charging stations provides a convenience charging option for WinCo customers and continued goal towards clean energy.
