Ecotality will supply stations at nearly 30 Fry's electronic stores in Arizona.

Ecotality Inc. and The Kroger Co., which owns the Valley’s Fry’s grocery stores, announced today an expanded partnership to bring electric car charging stations to 28 stores in the Phoenix area.

Ecotality (Nasdaq:ECTY), a leader in clean, electric transportation technologies, which has its operations center in Phoenix, is bringing more than 200 level-2, quick-charge charging stations, and 25 DC Fast Chargers, to stores in key markets through the EV (Electric Vehicle) Project. The project, a public-private partnership funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy, is a research initiative to help build America’s future electric vehicle infrastructure.

The multimillion-dollar expansion will grow the number of Blink chargers at the Cincinnati-based Kroger Family of Stores to close to 300.

Ecotality is working with Kroger (NYSE:KR) to install Blink EV charging stations at 28 Fry’s locations in Arizona, including stores in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa, Tempe and Glendale.
