Kohl's expanding its EV charging program
Kohl's is installing an electric vehicle charging stations at 18 new locations.
Kohl's Corp. said Wednesday that it is expanding its electric vehicle charging station initiative to include 18 more locations by the end of fall 2012.
The expansion spans three new states, including Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin and adds additional locations to the company’s Texas program. Each of the participating Kohl’s locations will have two or three parking spaces reserved for electric vehicles where drivers can charge their cars for free.
"Since Kohl’s EV charging station initiative began in December 2011, it has received extremely positive feedback from our customers who are excited about the added convenience," said John Worthington, Kohl’s chief administrative officer. "From our solar program to our green building efforts, Kohl’s has been pleased to be able to grow sustainability programs that make sense for our business, customers and communities – and our EV program is one more great example."
The Menomonee Falls-based department store chain began testing electric vehicle charging stations at 33 stores nationwide late last year. Each store in the pilot program has one to four parking spaces for electric vehicles.
Kohl's (NYSE: KSS) works with Duke Energy Corp., ChargePoint and ECOtality Inc. on the charging station installations.
