Through efforts of the EV Project, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy in building infrastructure to support electric transportation, two electric vehicle (EV) pedestal charging stations have been installed at The Cupboard Natural Foods and Café, in Denton.
The installation supports The Cupboard’s focus on sustainability and the environment as a retailer of healthy food and alternative medicine options in North Texas. The stations are part of the blink system, the world’s largest electric vehicle charging network.
Paul Tanis, Cupboard Natural Foods general manager, says, “With the installation of the charging stations, the Cupboard is providing a convenient location for electric vehicle charging, which is in direct alignment with our commitment to the environment and green technology.”
The stations are intended for short-term use of one to four hours, allowing vehicle owners to “top off” their car while eating a meal or grocery shopping. Charging stations offer a variety of payment options, including credit, debit, blink cards and key fobs. There’s even a smartphone app that texts or emails when charging is complete.
