Volta Charging has just announced the expansion of its collaboration with Walgreens USA to target installing 1,000 DC charging stalls at over 500 Walgreens in the United States.
The new agreement both furthers Volta’s DC Fast charging expansion strategy as well as Walgreens’ support of initiatives that lower emissions. Volta began working with Walgreens in 2019 and currently has stations across 49 of its stores.
“As we expand our DC Fast charging presence across the country, Walgreens is an ideal match for faster forms of Volta charging given the average time a Walgreens shopper typically spends in-store,”
“Volta’s intelligent charging network is built around understanding and anticipating consumer behaviour.”Scott Mercer, Founder and CEO of Volta
The Volta stations also double as a digital out-of-home advertising opportunity with large-format digital screens. These allow brands to reach shoppers just before they enter a store to make a purchase.
Volta say this functionality will be leveraged by Walgreens Advertising Group.
