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."

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

  • 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.
