Introducing a new environmentally-focused amenity for Wegmans’ shoppers 

Volta has teamed up with top grocery retailer Wegmans Food Markets to install electric vehicle charging stations at four of their locations on the East Coast: Burlington, MA; Northborough, MA; Alexandria, VA and Dulles, VA.

Revolution Ready

With national electric vehicle growth doubling year after year, and over 350,000 new electric vehicle sales projected in 2020, Wegmans turned to Volta to better understand the customer demand for vehicle charging.

The Smart Network

Volta’s free-to-use chargers draw in three times more shoppers as compared to other charging networks. The average Volta station is in use over seven hours a day, driving constant foot traffic into participating retailers and encouraging customers to stay longer. Volta uses a data-driven approach to build scalable charging networks. The number and speed of stations at each site are tailored to match customer demand.

Mission Driven

“Both Volta and Wegmans strive to create an exceptional customer experience while being environmentally responsible and investing in the communities we serve,” said Scott Mercer, Founder and CEO of Volta.

Ready, Set, Charge

The Volta stations at all four Wegmans’ locations are up and running, quickly reaching full capacity, and the accolades from customers have started rolling in. One Burlington customer on Plugshare said, “Wegmans and free charging! Why shop anywhere else?”
