Meijer has expanded its partnership with EVgo Inc. to install fast-charging stations with up to six stalls equipped with high-power 350kW chargers at select locations across Ohio.

To date, EVgo has deployed 24 stalls at six Meijer locations in Michigan and Ohio, including key metropolitan markets such as Cincinnati, Columbus and Detroit.

“EVgo has always operated with a customer-centric focus, and we have a long history of building infrastructure in convenient locations where the charging experience can be integrated into our drivers’ daily lives,” said Dennis Kish, chief operating officer at EVgo. 

“Grocery stores are a prime location for drivers to plug in to fill their cars and carts at the same time. By partnering with Meijer, we can help EV drivers across the Midwest take advantage of convenient public charging while they take care of their shopping list.”

Erik Petrovskis, Meijer’s director of environmental compliance and sustainability, said the grocer “cares about the communities we serve.” 

“Enabling electric vehicle charging in our communities aligns with our commitment to reduce carbon emissions,” he said. “We’re excited about this expanded partnership with EVgo to continue to meet the needs of EV drivers in the Midwest.”
