Walgreens customers, who also happen to own an electric vehicle, can now fill a prescription while also charging their car in the Orlando, Tampa and St. Petersburg, Florida areas. Walgreens teamed with Car Charging Group to install EV charging services to 13 Florida store locations and plan to expand their EV charging reach to other locales, including at Walgreens stores in Phoenix, Arizona, Akron, Canton and Columbus, Ohio, and Austin, Texas.

Car Charging Group installed Level II charging stations at the Florida Walgreen stores, which provide 240V and 32 amps of power for an EV vehicle’s battery. The charging stations use the standard SAE J1772 connector.

"Environmental sustainability is part of Walgreens commitment to help our customers live well, stay well and get well," said Walgreens market vice president Marlin Hutchens. "As more people choose greener, healthier lifestyles, we are excited to work with Car Charging Group to expand convenient EV charging options in the Orlando and Tampa/St. Petersburg areas as well as in several new states and markets to come."

  • Photovoltaics International 25th Edition

    In this issue we offer some insights into what the next wave of photovoltaic technologies may look like as that upturn gathers pace. Industry observers have been in broad agreement that the major next-gen PV technology innovations won’t happen straight away. But there’s also little doubt that the search is now on in earnest for the breakthroughs that will come to define the state of the art in the industry in the years to come.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
